I shoot primarily plants and animals (although I'm really interested in street right now). Here's a set of 8 of a rat snake eating a dead lizard. The rat snake was only about 8 or 10 inches long. If some of you saw this at DGrin, I apologize in advance. :wink:

1. Sniffing out dinner.

Fascinating Jen - excellent images!
Thanks for looking and commenting. :smile:

I did Enjoy them but not fond of snakes
I used to be neutral about snakes, but the more I learn about them the more I love them!

Thanks, I think so too. :smile:

One of my favorite snakes. WE'd all be up to our armpits in mice/rats without them. Lizard had dead a while it looks like.

Interesting images.

Excellent! Thanks for posting these.

Neat series Jen. Nice catch. Did he taste like chicken after you grilled him up for lunch? *-)
You know, he was a little too small for that. He would have shrunk down the size of an angel hair pasta noodle and wouldn't have been filling at all. :tongue:

Excellent series! As a former owner of several snakes, including a few rats, I enjoyed this. Was this taken in the wild?
It was taken at a botanical garden in Orlando. Thanks for your kind comments. :smile:

Fascinating shots.
Thank you, I'm glad you liked them!

Hehe, I like snakes though, so it wasn't a problem for me. Thanks for commenting. :biggrin:
