    I think these guys are starting to recognize me on the trail.

    My, what beady eyes you have!

    I think you're 'tailgating' him. Nice capture

    Thanks guys...These are some very timid lifeforms and hard to get into this position because most times they'll scoot...I so badly want this image while he's flicking his tongue out but I can't find the rhythm, it's a random pattern and very fast. When i trip the shutter, his tongue is back in his head. As I was shooting this little guy he decided to yawn for 3 or 4 secs...AND I WAS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL! His little mouth was wide open and I was not looking through the viewfinder...GRRRrrrrRR!

    You missed that moment ...

    But hey, you get to see these OUT IN THE WILD!
    While all my snake pics are those of my daughter's pet snakes! (And pretty few of those with them yawning or flicking their tongues, too, mind you!)
