Grass Snake

By grinningsoul2011
Out looking for Dragon flies and Lizards this weekend I couldn`t believe my luck when I spotted this grass snake basking on a pile of logs. I spent ages watching and taking photos, a real treat for me I have never seen a grass snake in the wild so to have my camera with me and get some shots well life just doesn't get any better.Smile

Good shot. I like the angle.
Thank you Millaross must admit angle was dictated by my view and height.

pretty large grass snake but I wouldnt be taking close up pics if it were me, you have captured some very good detail here
Thanks for your comments, while V1 is a typical pose I like V2 best I cropped it very slightly. Yes Pluckyfilly I think this snake was around 4ft long.

Well captured, showing good light & detail - not an easy creature to photograph.

Lovely capture; I especially like V1. Have you tried cropping off the light foreground? It might bring out the snake more.

The focus is just where it ought to be. I think this is a fine capture. Well done.
Paul and Mugshotmyk thanks for taking time to look and comment I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, the light was good.
