Thank you for your comments, Claudia & Marie-Claire. My main concern (besides composing the photo) was to not alert my dogs of the snake's presence. These snakes will flip onto their backs when disturbed, which is a poor defense against a dog.

I am in full agreement with Marie-Claire :)

Aah, then you would not get photos of them. There are very few dangerous snakes here: rattlesnakes (which I have never seen) and water moccasins (which I have seen and photographed).

An interesting snake, it looks extra-rippley. Or, is it my imagination? Superb shot!

Yeah, it is kinda ripply. I don't know why. Thanks for your visit.

Great capture, not a creature we see here in the UK.

Thanks, Doug. Not surprising. I thought St. Patrick drove all the snakes from Ireland to Britain? ;-)

Very nice. It must be digesting a prey?

Thanks, Dörthe. I don't know why it has the ripples. My guess is it was trying to look dangerous.
