Grass snake

The grass snake (Natrix natrix), sometimes called the ringed snake or water snake, is an Eurasian non-venomous snake. It is often found near water and feeds almost ;) exclusively on amphibians.

this one was in my garden hunting for frogs who were sunbathing at the edge of the pond.

YSL 33.100 - das hunderste Like für dieses tolle Schlangenportrait. Was für ein toller Moment! Super Zeichnung der Schlange. Obwohl ich ländlich wohne habe ich noch keine Schlange in freier Wildbahn vor die Linse bekommen. Blindschleichen ja... Viele Grüße von Bernd.

... wow! ... great macro; awesome details ... but it only looks ferocious at this range (250mm focal length, so maybe you weren't too close at the time)...

(and ... thanks for the link ...)
