A brilliant picture and a brilliant documentation of the shot.
I am afraid of snakes - didnīt it bite? Any poison?

They aren't poisonous, but they do have a mild and highly complex venom.  But, don't worry!  It doesn't harm people, it's prey-specific. :)

:D  These little guys are very docile - no biting :heart: and not poisonous!  I would NOT be doing this if there was any danger...for instance I would NOT do it with the local rattlesnakes which are poisonous :giggle: Now this is a REAL rattlesnake by kayaksailor Thank goodness for zoom lenses :laughing:

There is a wide variety of snakes here in my corner of the US but luckily the only poisonous are the rattlers who aren't aggressive.  You really have to piss them off for them to strike - or maybe accidentally step right on them...I've unknowingly step over one a couple times only to hear the rattle as I'm mid-step :faint:   We usually have a half dozen or more of them around the house during the warmer months, we "relocate" them if at all possible 'cuz they really do a good job at keeping the rodent populations down...we just don't want them by the house!  Here's my "critters" gallery kayaksailor.deviantart.com/gal… with more snake shots along with other critters... most of these are close to my home (we live in a very rural area with almost 8 acres - next to a large cattle ranch so lots of "critters" :love:)

If they do a good job, then they are accepted.
