  1. What a wonderful, eye-to-eye view you’ve offered. The expression on its face is so appealing — just delightful.

  2. It’s a very beautiful snake!😊 I had a corn snake for many years but now I only meet wild snakes to take shoots of them. Our European grass snake is also beautiful, black with yellow or white marks on the head. I have shoot many of them, but they are so shy so you must catch them and hold them for a while so they get almost tame.

  3. Cool shape poem & photo! When I hold snakes I’m always impressed by their muscles. You can feel their power.

  4. Though indeed I dislike them very much, (and never saw them beautiful) I loved your work of art Tom 🙂 Very nice!

  5. This was very clever of you Tom and the accompanying photo is amazing as well. I don’t like creepy crawlies and have to say I’ve never seen a snake, but I’d likely be afraid of it if I saw it. I’d hightail it pretty fast and the snake would say “what did I do?”

    • You’ve never seen a snake?! It’s a very sad statement about our environment if, with all the hiking that you passionately do, that you’ve never seen a snake! What a world! If you run into one, give it a chance and admire it; it’s the people that are the real dangerous ones! 🙂

      • Nope, never saw one and years ago my parents rented a cottage in Alpena, Michigan. My father saw a snake and chopped its head off with an axe then came in to tell my mom and I about how he made it safe for us to go outside the cottage. We didn’t ask questions, what type of snake, how big, etc. but I’ve never seen a snake at all. I hope I never see one while hiking around in the bushes … I would be scared of its bite. I am more scared of creepy crawlies … I’m afraid they will run up my legs or land on me.

  6. I enjoy the bull snakes, garter snakes and others. I don’t even mind the rattlers, unless they decide to move in!
