[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Corn Snake or Red Rat Snake (Elaphe guttata) is a species of Rat Snake. The Latin word elaphe means deerskin.[1] They will constrict out in the wild but if kept with people, they will not. They are not considered extremely dangerous. Their average adult length is about 1.2 to 1.8 metres (4-6 feet) fully grown, and they can live up to 20 years. They are found throughout the south-eastern and central United States as well as parts of Mexico. The name 'corn snake' refers to the splotched pattern on its belly, which resembles Indian maize. Some, however, believe it is because they are often found in corn fields where they search for rodent prey.

Hello Marjan
Looking at the thumbnails one cannot miss the beautiful colours of this signal red & orange snake. You captured some good details althought the exposure might be a bit on the bright side. The snake looks great against the dark green background.

Hello friend!
Great close-up ... I like the colours of snake!
Great POV and colours! Take care Ana:)

What a beautifully coloured snake this is Marjan. But, 4-6 feet - that's big! Good details too, and I find your nbotes very interesting too. TFS

hi marjan
je suis vraiment etonné par cette couleur!
il doit avoir bien du mal a se cacher dans la nature.

These colours are startling Marjan. How does a snake like this hide? Btw did you use flash? Nice to see the eye! Tfs, Jay
