DEATH BEGETS LIFE
There is something mesmerizing about this photograph. It is not only the beautiful lake and its reflection, or the soft colors of the little tree, there is also a deeper meaning to this picture.

STUNNING GREEN VINE SNAKE
This snake kind of looks like he is laughing. Anyway, this creature is amazing. It can be found in the tropical forests of India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand and Cambodia or Vietnam. This reptile has the ability to expand its body, and it gives birth to young that grow within its body. The author of the photograph said that the Green Vine Snake is one of the most beautiful snakes he has ever captured because of its bright colors and incredible posture.
