Snakes in water can move pretty fast; so can photographers when snakes move towards them

Snake in pond in Allandale Woods

Mary Ellen reports she was looking down at a pond in Allandale Woods on the West Roxbury/JP line the other day when she spotted a water snake. And then it started swimming towards her, probably because it spotted something tasty that wasn't her, but still, she jumped.

An ill-tempered, but harmless, species closely related to the garter snake. They are sometimes mistaken for Cottonmouths, but the Cottonmouth is a southern snake; Massachusetts is hundreds of miles outside its range.
