A northern monologue
This is beautiful! How often do we see snakes looking so curious and innocent? The one time I saw a rattlesnake in the wild, it was similar. Just moving across a trail, with a purposeful expression on its face...tk
Thank you! It made my day. It was such a tiny little guy, and incredibly hard to see against the rock, unless you're zoomed in like this. Purposeful is right. I was tempted to follow it to see where it was headed. Lucky you! I'd love to see a rattlesnake on the move. I saw one sunning by a picnic table in Red Rock Coulee in Alberta once.
phenomenal photo moment! and two of my favorite types of creatures together.
lovely shot & your caption is a lovely micropoem too!
I love it. I quite like snakes, at least when they don't sneak up on me.
Thanks! Yes, sneaky snakes wouldn't be good at all.
I, too, saw a snake the other day, slinkering by where a path diverged in the woods. It went one way and I went the other. There was no ant and I think that made all the difference...:)
Where a path diverged! Your encounter invites no end of story possibilities!
