Grass snake are non-poisonous and harmless inhabitant of the shores. Not everyone likes them, but they also have a lot of friends that do not like the evil that these little guys live in close proximity. Someone can view almost three feet long growing snake to be scary, but it is in no way dangerous.

Wow ! seems very long ! The snakes need the sun and heat, her live in Finland is not very easy, I think.
Excellent shot !

@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): It has two or three snakes. The snakes are hibernating in mid-September until spring. In the spring they come out of their holes when the air is warm enough Thank you

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Thanks for the information. Non-poisonous and harmless, but scarcely after all.

4 May 2016 8:41am

@Hiro: They do not bite and inject. They eat frogs, lazy, mice and other small animals. There is no reason to escape, they are afraid of more people.

Marie-France from Angers, France

beach from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Not dangerous and probably eating a few mice and other small rodents. Beneficial, in other words. That said, I am not a big snake fan.

4 May 2016 10:44am

@beach: You are absolutely right. They are useful and harmless. Not everyone likes them.

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

They are beautiful creatures, JP and a great capture. Cobras etc might be different as they can be dangerous to the humans --- but they are magnificent animals and share the Earth with us.
Kindest regards --- Monika

@Shiva: Thank you for your great idea. The animals, including snakes must have space in this world. They have a purpose and it must not be forgotten.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

I am glad to know these are harmless! I am not a fan of snakes, but this is an excellent photo of these.

4 May 2016 4:35pm

@Ruthiebear: Thanks. Fun, remote you liked the image. I would like a snake as a pet, but I also do not want to hate any animal just because it is a snake, for example. It is part of nature like any other animals.

Sam from Chennai, India

Great shot. Amazing details. :)

@Sam: Thank you

Mirjam from Kyiv, Ukraine

Great image but snakes ...

4 May 2016 8:24pm

@Mirjam: Thank you. These snakes are useful to some extent at least, and they are harmless to humans. They have their own place and role in nature.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

I'm not fond of snakes but, I know they catch insects and the bigger ones catch mice, etc. So, they are good for the environment.

4 May 2016 11:27pm

@Steve Rice: These snakes are harmless to humans. As you say, they eat mice, voles and other nuisance issues. I think these fit into life in nature with others.
