    taking advantage of a warm and beautiful day !!

    to make new pictures of the 3 Desert Ghosts
    I tried to make shots in the bright sun as well as in the shade, as that changes their color and contrast

    Arjana (Pastel DG) is not part of this photo shoot because she is deep in shed.


    Starting with Sirius, Pastel Butter Enchi DG male










    next is Venus, Pastel Enchi DG female












    last is Aurora, Lemonblast Enchi DG female. I don't have great pictures of her. She truly is SO much more beautiful then that. But she is very shy and still stresses easily. So I don't want to put her through "posing" for pictures. When I put her down she tries to hightail out of there, LOL. Very sweet girl, though, and coming along great. Finally switched to F/T, eating well, and getting much better with handling (not freaking out so much). MUCH better pictures will follow when she is more relaxed with handling.

    Thank you

    This is the Beauty of owning a Ball Python. There is "some look" for everybody. Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder. There are many "wild type, normals" that make me drool. I find many single gene animals stunning as well.

    Then you have the generally beautiful personality of the Ball Pythons. They can be shy, but they do learn to trust. And there are different nuances within.

    Some people say they are boring. I have had Blood Pythons, Borneos, Brazilian Rainbow Boas, Redtail Boas, Carpet Pythons, Rubber Boas, Green Tree Pythons, Russian Ratsnakes, Rosy Boas, etc. But I have to say, Ball Pythons are still my favorite. Even though all the other species were unique, beautiful and interesting as well.

    My heart lies with BP's. And not just because of "morphs". Sure, I love the appearance of Desert Ghosts but I admire many other colors/patterns as well. No matter how rare or costly they may be (or not).

    I'm still new, but I'm curious as to what morph in Sirius makes his blushing so prominent? I LOVE the way his blushing is.

    It is the combination of the different genes. Butters have that beautiful soft blushing, pastel lightens it and enchi + the desert ghost clean it up and give it the glow
