I was at the falls (Toccoa Falls) earlier this week taking photos of two fabulous people: Nan Payne and Dan Shust. Dan doesn’t look a day over 35(!) and Nan has wonderful blue eyes. Suddenly we spotted this guy in the above photo on the rocks near the waterâ€”just chilling and catching some rays. All three of us had to investigate: Dan “had” to throw a couple of rocks to see if he would move (a “guy” thing!), and I “had” to take photos.
Here’s Nan and Dan a few minutes before we saw Mr. Snake.
I usually won’t post snake photos on this site because Chipley tells me they are creeeepy. But I thought it was worth doing just this once. I also want to pass on this warning: Copperheads are really out and about this summer. The winter was mild and the summer is hot. This guy is just doing what snakes like to doâ€”hang out by the water and have their photos taken. (smile)
