    I thought it best to share words written by a black person rather than my own. “ The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.” - Scott Woods

    Not much out there in the world that is as beautiful as this emerald palm snake. I think anyway. This rare serpent had a dozen shades of green and half a dozen shades of blue. Photographed at  @hojanueva Follow @raisingkhanfilm and tomorrow I’ll share video of this snake there :)

    In my short time on earth this pandemic is by far the most potent reminder we hold the fate of the world in our hands. That fact both terrifies me and gives me hope. I’ve heard our fight against this virus described as a war , and I don’t disagree , especially because I’ve personally never seen acts of beauty and sacrifice performed at the same time as acts of selfishness and malevolence. We all know about the ugly and evil so I’ll share a bit of beauty with you: last night I sat next to @melissalesh as she played @yoyoma for her father @scottrlesh who is in the ICU with a life threatening case of Covid 19. The next morning , on another phone call with her father , a young doctor came into the room and held his hand as she explained to Melissa what to expect moving forward. I hope all of you are staying safe and being kind. And I hope we emerge from this crisis with a new vision for the future.

    @suryakeerthi82 after going the distance to rescue this Spectacled cobra from pipes inside a persons bathroom. Took about 2 hours all up to flush the cobra out using water.  After this rescue call Surya dumped the water out of his shoes, cleaned off, and went to rescue another snake. Made this photograph during one of the best months I’ve had in a long time. With @paulrosolie in the amazing country that is India.

    As many of you are aware almost all my posts on here relate to conservation of wild places and wildlife. So earth day isn’t really a thing for me because I’m thinking about what is happening to our planet almost daily. I will say this though, today is as good a day as any to follow organizations like @fonassociation who , even in times of crisis, continue to help organizations on the frontlines of saving animals like this very sophisticated frog with orange toe pads and a very fashionable grey suit. It’s called Linda’s Torenteer frog. Follow @fonassociation for more cool frogs and because we will be collaborating on more cool projects  when travel is safe again. @fonassociation @tropicalherping

    King Cobra I photographed near Mangalore, India with @paulrosolie in January 2019. Wild how much the world has changed since then. I am aware humans have an amazing capacity to forget and move on, but I remain optimistic we will emerge from this pandemic and economic crisis with new ways of living that are more caring and compassionate towards all walks of life, even snakes!  I know many of you are very worried right now and are trying to keep your lives afloat - and don’t have anything to spare - but if any of you still have jobs and love snakes and would like a signed 8x10 print from me at a reduced price , I’ve added a few options at the link in my bio. 25 percent of the profits I will donate to @hojanueva so they can continue to care for their animals. The rest will allow me to keep working on the film about Keanu. Link in bio 🙏

    2 years of photographing snakes in the Amazon and I never tire of coming across black skinned parrot snakes. Photographed this one with @harry__turner @sjzwicker at @hojanueva

    Probably the most beautiful amazon whip snake I’ve ever seen. Was found by @harry__turner as it was crossing a river close to @hojanueva

    Photo by @fonassociation | Guessing this is how many of us look right about now: wide eyed and holding on tight. Rest assured, the giant river otters in the Amazon are not concerned with the corona virus, though they have had - and still have - plenty of challenges to their survival. Head over and follow @fonassociation for more photographs from trips we’ve been on together.
