Good spotting, even if technically not superb. I'd love to see one of these in the wild.

Good point. Though you did refer to it, I didn't note your reference to other, more cuddly species. You triggered one of my hot-button lectures, and I didn't fully ponder what you'd said fully.

"Dramatic" lighting experiment

http://www.photomacrography1.net/images/srilankatreeviperspotW6465.jpg An experiment with lighting that I think was successful, but I'm biased on the matter!

Why not experiment? If you prefer not to use flash, the other suggestion I'd have is to crank your 350D up to ISO 1600 or so and try shooting at f/4 or f/5.6 in fairly bright light with your 100mm macro.
