not a great photo i know - but i am not use to seeing snakes! especially not in my pond! plus i wasnt expecting him to come out of the water and look down the camera. Scarey! the light was very bad hence the DOF
Rachel, i am a snake fanatic and i know what it is like to get inspected by one. This is a great capture and you should be proud to have one in your pond, it means you have a little eco system that is working in your garden. I am green with envy.
It's not a sin to love wildlife, we need it to survive GET INVOLVED
Agree with Dilwyn's comment Rachel..... it is a great shot....very different and engaging......your new found friend has a "questioning" look, even down to the tilt of the head....good on you for having a pond for wildlife too...Alan
