Same snake from a previous upload - this time sailing away after it came out of its protective coiled up protective mode [ V2] !
I am so grateful for every vote and comment on yesterdays Blue Mountains - thank you so much for taking the trouble to vote and comment Smile Thanx to Ivor for his stunning mod Smile
Today is another day of school winter sport - our son Nathan has to play hockey and after that some more gardening for this old man to plant more winter bulbs Smile
Have a great day !!

Really not something I'd like to come upon. I'd need the longest lens made to get a close-up of these. You've captured him well in both shots Herman......Sandy

Love that coiled image at V 2, Herman: not an easy subject to tackle.
Talking of you planting spring bulbs, all our tubs of daffodils and tulips are at their very best just now, planted last October.

We are lucky or some would disagree that we have only two snakes in Britain and one only venomous the Adder that you would be lucky in a lifetime to see because they are so shy, I do find them fascinating creatures, nicely taken Herman, good shadows and detail.
