Nice detail...great catch on the top of the leaves.
eek but a good shot
Nicely captured with the dead leaves! I had a family of those who lives beneath an old stump at my summer house, but they were too shy to photograph.
Nice capture Jim. I hope one of your hawks doesn't swoop down and carry it away :)
Well seen. The leaves, for size comparison, make you realize that this is a fairly petite snake.
