Photo Friday: Staring Down Snakes

This week I took another trip to my favorite park, Hinkley, which never stops surprising me.  This time of the year, the temperatures never really go up to the 50’s, and this particular day was about 46.  This is why seeing a snake came as a surprise.

I decided to get as close to eye level as any human can get, so with me on my stomach the snake did something I didn’t expect.  I suppose it must have seen its reflection on the lens, but it raised itself up and stared at the camera while I kept taking shots.

The unpredictable behavior of nature is wonderful, isn’t it?
