Thank you fellow rangers for nominating this for spotting of the week! I always love to see snakes as the topic. But it is a special honor to have one of mine nominated.

Thank you all for the very kind comments! This is one of my favorite animals and I love when other people appreciate my work with them. Thank you so much!

Congratulations on the nomination for S)TW Lisa. Great series.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
