It is well, very nice snake would be shame not take a picture. But it is a sad look on garden with tire,
Too often in my country too.

What a marvellous picture of a snake, Alexei!
Though I'm scared of snakes, I am not averse to admiring a picture of them as good as this one.
Thanks and regards.

Ciao Alexei, great capture of fantastic snake, beautiful ambientation, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
Very funny that you are speaking of "cute creature"! Now It is probably a Natrix looking at its round eye and the patterns of the body. They are often close to water too.
Well presented natural picture.

surprising encounter with this snake. I like the good sharpness and the fine details. I also like the vermiculated pose and the natural surrounding.

The cropping you did it is great but i prefer
much more the uncropped photo because it shows
more about the environment, reading your notes
to this kind of photography in French we say
« photo prise sur le vif », TFS

having been absent from this site for several months, it is a great pleasure to see some fresh postings from you, and very lively and exciting ones, again! To me, that looks like a very good portrait of
Coronella austriaca (Laurenti, 1768,) Обыкновенная медянка,
looking quite dangerous because of its obvioudly aposematic markings resembling the poisonous Vipera berus. In fact, that snake is just as harmless to us humans as its other native relatives of Colubridae. But carefully staying in good distance and making use of a good tele will always be a good idea, who knows ...
Thank you my dear friend! Sending you all my best wishes from Vienna, Austria,

Excellent photo, many details on the snake. The crop and composition's also perfect, just like the exposure. Brilliant shot, congratulations. Did your granddaughter manage to do her own photo, too?
Best regards, László
