Camera Critters: grass snake



These are old photos from 
my archives.
They were taken at Korkeasaari
(Helsinki Zoo) and
they were taken through glass.
The grass snake (natrix natrix)
is non-venomous.

  2. What cool photos! I actually really like snakes (well, the non-venomous one :-) I used to catch small garter snakes to observe for a short time when I was a kid and we always seemed to have black snakes sunning on our porch :-)

  6. Så länge dom är bakom glas kan ormar vara ganska fascinerande. Du tycks ha fångat den här ormens uppmärksamhet!

    1. Det är kanske inte så många som sätter näsan fast i glaset och tittar på den!

  10. Hi Gunilla. Somehow I missed you last week. Oh dear I don't like snakes. They give me chills even through glass and even non-venomous.
    However, I do appreciate how very lovely they are. And, this one is very pretty.

    I wonder if the term Pretty Poison comes from the snake world? It seems the more venomous sometimes the more beautiful they will have. Hummmm...just curious. I hope you had a great week and I wil see you later today I hope!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
