Have seen a few whilst fishing but never had the camera handy. Watched one jump into an overhanging branch straight from the water. Good capture.

Nice and sharp.
Good timing too. Like the head reflection in the water.

Superb image and a great spot, the last time I saw a grass snake in the wild would have been 30-40 years ago.

That's cool. I've never seen one myself, but always ride through woodland and nature reserves.

One day.....

How can a snake swim with no legs? I've got 2 arms and legs and can't swim!

That's a lovely shot! Was there two weeks ago, disappointed not to see any wasp spiders, interested to hear if you saw any evidence when you were there?

Been a few times since then and always kept an eye out for wasp spiders but not come across any. The path leading to the goo sander hide is supposed to be a good location but as I say none visible
