Look who was lerking in my pond!

He's a beauty! Well done, two medals, one for bravery and one for top photography. Thanks for sharing. What gets me, your daughter called you, the snake was still there when you rushed out with the camera? Or did you creep up. You know when they lift up their head they mean business. They actually smell with their tongue as well.

It stayed in our pond all afternoon. i crept up on it. we dont see many snakes over here - i have only seen a couple in my life.

Was this just his eyes adn silly tongue peeking out of the water to breath...he is beautiful...my dad had a big pond on the property where I was raised....he grew bull frogs in it and the snakes came in to eat the frogs...they were thick there...he had and awful time getting rid of them.

good job you have only put it on here in a small file or im sure it would have be stolen! I belong to a few photography sites and have sold a couple of shots. Do you have this pic in a full sized file as Im sure it would sell. If so I can let you have details if you want
beautiful capture
