bit close :)
Although the snake was very small and young, there does seem to be a small wound below his eye and in the full resolution copy of this image I noticed some scratches on his eye. Snakes don't have eyelids to protect their eyes, so fortunately when they shed their skin that includes the skin covering the surface of their eye, so they get clear vision again.
Amazing Photo, JeffSullivan. Probably the cornea seems to be intact: I can see the sun..photographer..camera, probably a rock..sign.. water. Very good, creative Mirror. Ciao, Gilberto.
Yes, this is a self portrait, in a snake's eye! This was taken in the spring and this baby gopher snake had just emerged from hibernation, and was sunning himself next to a warm building wall in the sun. He didn't move until I picked him up. I think he was still affected from his long winter sleep. I helped him get warm then sent him off on his first hunt of the year.
That's really an original self portrait Jeff!
This brilliant picture is FEATURED at Life is full of beauty
A different way for a self portrait, what´s the next?? maybe in a crocodile´s eye, :), greetings from Spain.
