    Thanks! Working my way up from Het Axanthics to the combos over time. Should reach a few of my project goals in 2-3 years.

    Iolite is Pleochroic which means it can absorb different wavelengths of light and appear different colors at different angles.
    Camera flash gives a vivid blue reflection on this piece.

    A lot of the translucent stones aren't the easiest to photograph as a group--you can usually see the inclusions in them which makes some weird images.

    She was asleep when I took her out and she woke up while I was taking photos and was like 'Whoa!'

    I sure hope not. A few photos is a small price to pay for free room and board and an all-you-can-eat rodent buffet.

    Sorril I know you're doing this just for fun, but have you considered looking into doing a coffee table book or something with some of these photos? I think these are perfect for it and would be a great medium to showcase these animals as well as your hard work with the stones.

    Thank you for the compliment, but, nah, I think my photos will reach more people online in a digital format as opposed to a printed one. Besides....there are many beautiful coffee table books that are in the local bookstore clearance bin.

    Most of the snakes shown with the 2020 image copyright are holdbacks that are currently in my collection. I will begin taking photos of all my ball python hatchlings with stones starting this year (2021) prior to rehoming. I expect my photo collection to grow significantly in a relatively short time and the plan is that each year (ideally) the morph combos will become more interesting over time...

    Maybe if I decide to become a business or surface as an official breeder in a decade or two I can use the Snakes/Stones as my gimmick.
