GOLD EYELASH VIPER   Bothriechis schlegelii  -  Perfection in a pose - just like it was resting there in a dripping wet Costa Rican rain forest with the sun beaming in from above!  What could make it more realistic?  Perhaps some jungle bug fluttering past in the background???  Just as I was thinking that very thought, a cockroach came creeping up out of the hollow log photo prop I was using.  See its antennae and head, down near the tail end of the tree viper?  Alas, it was just a common old American cockroach, nothing exotic and scenic to enhance the image.  After I shooed it away, I took another shot exactly like this one, sans intruder, of course!
