Here’s the snake!

by Matthew Cobb

No one could see the snake (me neither). So I asked Sky for the answer. It’s a black racer snake (she was out looking for rattlers). You can just about make it out if you click through to the large version of the photo. Sky said on other tw**ts that she heard it rustling in the leaf-litter before she saw it.

    I wasted all morning looking for a timber rattlesnake. Never again.

    Not enough detail in the photo to distinguish it from branches or debris. I can only take her word for it that that is a snake.

      If you click through to Twitter and then “view image” (right mouse button or a two-finger-tap on a touch pad), you get a fairly large magnification.

    That thing’s invisible!

    I blew the image up to fill my screen and then I could *just* make out above the yellow line a few disconnected bits of detail that might or might not have been part of a snake. I’m still not sure if I’m looking at the right bits.

    If my life depended on spotting that snake, I would be dead.

    I consider myself pretty bad at these, I only find it around half the time, but this one was just poor resolution and therefor almost impossible.
