Project 365, Day 23 - Snake Love


Day 23 - Snake Love, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

These two boa constrictors belong to my belly dance teacher's daughter; they are incredibly beautiful animals. The photo was taken without flash in low light, and through glass, so it came out very warm and with not a lot of contrast. I decided to make the most of the unusual lighting effect by playing with the saturation.

They are gorgeous . . . I really really wanted to grab one of them out of the tank and wrap him around myself. They're just so cool. But . . . I didn't think it was the right time to ask to do that (we were there dyeing belly dance scarf/veils, so not really the best time for World o' Snakes). :D

Although, she also has some rescued birds - a cockatiel, and some sort of conure (black-cheeked, or something like that). OMG I was so tempted to bring one of them home. I need some pets. But . . . if we're going to get a dog, probably not fair to have a bird. The bird would be either terrified all the time, or would have to live in a back room, away from the dog. (Oh, and I'm getting a cat too, which is probably even worse, from the standpoint of the bird). :D

I am seriously thinking about an iguana, though (or some other sort of large lizard). I've still got that huge fishtank . . . if I made a lid for it, it would be an awesome vivarium. Of course, pretty much all my companion animal plans will have to wait until Connor and I are in our new place. But it won't really be all that long before that happens. (August at the latest) . . . so YAY! :)
