Excellently caught behaviour. I'm sure this is a rare sight at the best of times, so to catch a sharp image is very well done. great stuff.

To quote indiana jones: "Snakes! I hate snakes!".

But im still giving you a click as you deserve praise for not running away from such fearsome reptiles! Wink

Nothing fearsome about them, its a shame they are so misunderstood and feared.

Anyway, I was lucky enough to watch the same spectacle a few days ago. Well done for capturing the action!
