A gorgeous find…..a Northern Water Snake….wrapped in the metal wire of a drain fence along a fresh lake.
This fellow and 3 others were using this technique very successfully and could care less that I was photographing them only a few feet away.
When I first walked up all I saw was a bit of it’s tail wrapped around the wire…but as I prepaired for photos his head and parts of his body rose out of the water. Incredible!
Talk about using human handiwork to improve apon life-skills!
