Taking a Break

This rat snake was enjoying a quiet moment beside the boardwalk until I disturbed it.



Sorry about that, little guy.

Snakes are just amazing animals. Look at how he balances his coiled mass on that skinny stem! And they can climb straight up walls!! Without hands or feet!!! They are worthy of many many exclamation marks!!!!

Love the second shot. It's like: If I can't see you then you can't see me.

Snakes are such beautiful creatures. I've never understood the fear of them that runs so deeply in most people.

Nice, Swampy! I've yet to see a snake this season (with snow today, no wonder why). Great photos, and I quite agree with Ellen's punctuation.

Wonderful photos! I love the way snakes can tie themselves in knots. And then to balance like that, as Ellen said, without hands or feet - that's talent!
