Default snake and tit

I've been out and about getting the last shots with my e-520 for my last wee film and I saw a couple of things you I thought I'd share.. Not great photos but just strange behaviour really. I found a yew tree in the church yard and the long tail tits were sunbathing on top of it. not like a dustbath or a rest, proper upside down. I managed to film it but here are a couple of shots.. the video of them is here. although I only managed to film one panting and "half reclined" . I'd never seen them doing that before..

And this doesn't need any explanation (apart from its dead) but it is , or rather was as big as a snake ever gets in the uk I think.. I measured her at 39 inches but that was not completley straight
Again I filmed it as well to make a short story out of it.

Not great shots but thought I'd share

How disappointing, when I first read your description I was expecting photos of some tall good looking women who were sunbathing topless.

Well, after I got over the disappointment, I appreciated the unusual shots. I've not seen a bird lay like that either. Was the snake going after the little frog in the picture?
