Walking home from my day job today, I saw this guy on the sidewalk, (yes, it's an asphalt sidewalk) and I was a bit surprised that he didn't slither away onto the lawn right there. In fact, when I got close to get this photo, he kind of lunged at me like I would imagine a cobra or rattler would strike. So I didn't get too close. Just close enough to get this shot.

Click on the photo to see it full-size.


  1. WTHeck!!!?! Where do you live, the amazon!?! Haha! You have the most amazing things around you. I need to open my eyes more! Nice shot! His tongue out and everything! Love it!

  2. It looks like a garter snake - hope it wasn't more dangerous than that! Great shot!
