Green vine snake

A bright green vine snake - harmless to humans - wrapped around an orange heliconia in Cayo, Belize. He was so well camouflaged that I walked past the bush several times without noticing him. What finally caught my eye was the different shape and movement to the rest of the bush. Hummingbirds fluttered around him but he ignored them.
