    What a find while walking

    Walking through the woods today - came across this little guy! Well actually there were 4 but this one wasn't afraid of me getting close!

    All I did was crop it a little and add a little more brightness and contrast....

    I'm beat and will be heading for the couch soon. I'm a little out of shape and the fresh air all day has made me very tired....
    Hope you all like this! I do!!!
    BUT I would love suggestions for the next time we meet each other in my many walks in the future!
    Thank you!

    Hi Kori,

    Magnificent shot.

    The only suggestion that I can make is "Enter it in the Weekly Challenge" for this week (it's the "sticky" at the top of the people and pets forum

    ... I'd say it's in with an excellent chance!

    Hi Kori,

    That's brilliant, you should put it in the weekly challenge, you've about 3 hours left to post for this week's, or catch next week's when it opens Monday evening (GMT), what's that, about your Monday lunchtime I reckon.

    Of course, I'm dead jealous; I went for a countryside walk with my sister last Sunday morning on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and was told we might happen across a snake sunning itself, but we had no such encounter!

    Amazingly well done,

    Great catch, the DOF is impressive! That little guy is probably hungry after a long winter.

    Most people don't realise this, but snakes have something in common with bears and spiders ...

    ... they're ALL big and scary!
