Today I found this little fellow sunning himself on the leaf of my hibiscus .
No more than a cm. in size he has the most amazing colors of a vivid blue and a sea green .
Do enlarge to see the spectrum of colors radiating from his wings that are oh so gossamer thin and delicately transparent...

This created quite a storm in the early morning teacup !
Agreed it wasn't the snake itself but the skin it had shed , yet it was quite fascinating .
Do click on the pictures to take a good look .
You can even see the 'eyes' of the molting !
The picture showing the belly having a slight rip truly needs to be enlarged to see just how fragile and transparent the skin is .
