Tiger snake of the Great South West Walk

While walking part of the Great South West Walk in the Lower Glenelg National Park I came across a Tiger snake sunning itself in the afternoon sun.  I moved to the side of the track and photographed it as it got closer to my camera. It seemed curious about the lens. A good way to not fear a snake is to try and photograph it (safely)…well after the yelp of fright from initial contact… they are harder to photograph than birds…while moving much slower, they are less visible and less common to find.
