|VRHD - Winter Phase
Adult male. As the name suggests, the Winter Phase VRHD bring to mind stark landscapes of snow and ice and this example is no exception. What little dark pigment there is on this animal is set off to brilliant effect against a contrasting field of soft whites and pale yellows. The Winter Phase VRHD are often so light that getting the camera metering to successfully accommodate both snake and background can be a challenge. The tail on this one is a wonderful pastel yellow in life.
