Yes, I swore a bit…
I wasn’t really looking too much ahead of me. When confronted with this sight, I back-pedalled rather quickly.
Luckily all ended well – I kept my distance (obviously that was AFTER this photo), and stomped about a bit, eventually the snake took a leisurely approach to moving off.
I was only a few paces from this snake when I first saw it – what an adrenalin rush that was! Scared the &%$ out of me…
This image was taken in the Cradle Mtn Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania. Specifically, along the Arm River track.
