You can get almost anyone to pose..... If you pay them enough. :-)

Very cute!

It's amazing he stood still long enough for you to take the pic!

Like I said, as long as you pay them enough. Nuts in this case. :lol:

Here's a picture of him while we were "negotiating" his fee..



Obviously, he's not happy with the offer I just made!

Great shot, sharp and nice choice getting low to the ground for a unique perspective.

Thank you. I'm surprised that some animals will let me get that close when I'm on the ground like that.

Actually, many animals are probably letting you get that close because you are on the ground at their level. Towering over them seems to me to be a surefire way in which to get them into their defensive or flight behavior.

Now, on the other hand, if you are at ground level and slither and undulate back and forth as you move, well, that might make them flee quickly :-)


(The peanuts helped quite a bit, too)

Still, having this big creature trying to get close to you while it stares at you with that one big eye! :shock:

Of course, he probably knew that it was just another nut!
