Author's notes

At last, a photo of a white-lipped snake! These little guys are very disinclined to hang around when you disturb them. Being only 30 cm or so long, I guess they are prey as often as they are the predator, making them a bit nervous. It was slipping through a tussock in a montane bog at around 940m elevation.

Great find Jackie! An excellent photo as well, which was needed for the field guide.
Congratulations!
