Check this friend out! He's a pacific gopher snake, roughly 4.5 feet. Zac and I were hiking some trails we hadn't been on before near the Mad River, along some nice cottonwoods and this guy was completely loving the fact that the sun had been out for more than 45 minutes at a time. I don't blame him.
I was able to get some up close and personal shots with the macro and extension tube. I thank him for staying put for so long! He was beautiful. I'm so glad we've been seeing snakes lately! I love snakes! Still waiting for the first rattlesnake of the year though...We actually saw 3 other gopher snakes yesterday and 3 ring-necked snakes too - niiiice! Macro Monday, My World
This is me with a different (smaller) gopher snake yesterday.
