I haven’t seen a grass snake for years, it’s particularly wonderful to see such close pics of these smile
I love the narrow depth of field

I'm not a hot weather lover, either.....
That's one of the main reasons I moved from Texas to the Great Northwest, when I retired....

Beautiful pictures! I live in southern Indiana USA and we have been having temps in the 90Fs! All our critters hide when it's that hot! Nice post ☺
