Snakes are Wildlife too!

Snakes are wildlife too! I have seen a few snakes out this Spring season so far.

Red Racer in Anza Borrego Desert State Park
Close up shot of the Red Racer snake in Indian Valley Anza Borrego. He would not move his head away from the shade of the bushes so it was hard to get a clear photograph.

Gopher Snake Near Carrizo Gorge
Scott stepped within inches of this gopher snake and it wouldn't have harmed him but we were both on rattlesnake alert and this was the second of 4 snakes we would see on this trip

  1. I absolutely love those!It's not often you see a blog that shows you snakes. Pity even I have not taken a snake photo yet,living in a country so rich in snake diversity!

  2. Amila, the wildlife photos you have are so amazingly good it makes up for not having any snakes! And when you do get some photos of snakes I am certain they will also be amazing.
