Author's notes

I was photographing a skink then slowly began to skirt round for a clearer view, but when I turned back this snake was gliding over the wood where the skink had been. It came out of nowhere and must have passed quite close behind me. I waited for it to come back out in the open, instead I eventually saw a smaller, lighter coloured snake hunting in the grass, and about to come in my direction. I decided it was time to leave.
