Description:

I saw this little snake's head poking out of a niche in my garden wall shortly after sunset (photo taken with flash). An hour later it was still there (but gone the next morning). It is probably the same snake (or a friend or relative) of the same species I posted last year - they seem to find the wall, with its many nooks and crannies and a nearby pond, an attractive habitat. It was not bothered by my obvious presence, and I presume was waiting in ambush for suitable prey.
