An northern watersnake allows the rushing water of Coleman Creek to cool and disguise him on a warm late summer afternoon in Little Rock. A small colony of these snakes inhabit part of the creek that runs through the campus of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

      1. A dragon of the deep?!? What a lovely thought πŸ˜€ Our grass snakes are swimmers and do a lot of their hunting in rivers and streams but I have never ever seen one in the water! Snakes are such naturally shy creatures though which makes it really special to capture one in the water like that πŸ˜€

      2. The film and images I’ve seen of them are gorgeous! The absolutely glide across the water πŸ™‚ It’s been hot as hell here today! It’s the humidity that’s evil. I’m with the snakes on getting in the water! Open water swimming has taken over my life recently and I just love leaping into the lake on a hot muggy day πŸ™‚ Wish I was as graceful as a snake!!
