At first she didn't seem to mind the camera — S and circle pose
While out on my walk on the river, I came across a little Western Hognose snake. She was about 16 inches long and wanted to get away, but I kept pulling her back and making her pose — being somewhat of a fashion queen she got into several great poses for me. However, she finally got fed up with me not letting her get away, and went into her drama queen, throes of death, you killed me act by rolling over on her back, opening her mouth and letting her tongue hang over to the side. She was really trying her best to make me feel bad about make her pose for the camera.

Another lovely pose with her tongue out
She got fed up and started to curl up tightly
She flipped over in the throes of death — killed by the pesky paparazzo shooting her with his camera.
She rolled over once, dragged her tongue on the ground so it had sand on it to be even more convincing.
She rolled upright looked around to see what the paparazzo was doing.
She finally decided I wasn't a predator, and started crawling toward the edge of the ditch bank.
Another view of her crawling off to safety from the pesky paparazzo.
