Thanks everyone! I've now added the pics of the female - not as good, as I didn't have a window to hide behind.

Kate, we hope that you were a safe distance from this boomslang while you took this photo! Congratulations, it's earned you a well deserved Spotting of the Day! Although highly venomous, boomslangs are timid snakes, and rarely bite humans unless they attempt to handle, catch or kill them.

I cheated - I was safely behind a closed window!
