This green Tree snake has been frequenting our neighbourhood. It was spotted in our garden two days ago and yesterday was caught in our neighbour's garden. There was a bit of moisture in the bottom of the barrel, hence the glare Smile It was taken to the mountain and released there.
Thank you to all who voted and commented on my Persimmons photo and especially to Jukka [kuvailija] and Hugh [Morpheus1955] for their UA's and Willie [ banehawi] for his great mod Smile

Good picture with the snake's green colour standing out in contrast to the blue background. What is the approximate length of the snake?

I am guessing that this is quite a harmless snake? From the shape of its head, does not appear poisonous. Quite pretty. Is that a kids pool that it is in?

Good capture----take that however you want, Herman. Nice photo, too.
