Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Micrurus distans distans
Clear-Banded Coral Snake

Sonora, Mexico

"Snake!  Stop!"  I had just drove the car out of the gates of the hotel when CJ shouted out.  He was out of the car in a flash, with me in close pursuit, and there it was - a coral snake, right in the town of Alamos!

A cool snake, but it was the most difficult snake I have ever tried to photograph.  It simply would not stop moving under any circumstances.
