My lovely neighbor and even lovelier friend Tara Schlotzhauer, came a knocking at my backdoor late this evening. Her boyfriend and avid snake lover Casey Blystone had captured a wild rat snake at Pertile Springs here in Warrensburg and they were about to release it. She thought it was a good photographic opportunity and invited me to take part in the release. I got some really interesting images. For a wild snake this little one posed well and behaved almost as if it was natural for a human to be handling it. Casey and Tara both seemed impressed… in fact I think Casey now has an inkling to get a rat snake of his own. 🙂
Tara is an awesome snake photographer and she actually has a blog in which she discusses her personal snakes–you should really check it out there is some amazing stuff! To redirect yourself to The Serpentine Nest simply click here. Tara also has a photography blog you can visit by clicking here.
I hope you enjoy the images!!
