Snakes have always held facination for, I love to catch them for a moment or two, look into those eys, feel the cool texture and admire the patterns on the skin. 

At my dad's place, they have this snake, a gopher snake of some kind, they have this defence or difiance you could say, where they curl up, shake their tail and make a hissing sound that is very like a rattler, one of the boldest snakes I have ever encountered. Their markings are gorgeous, a coppery color, with salmon belly and a dark brown squared pattern down their backs. 

So I'm out back of the property working on the daughter do list and I turn around, there is one of these stretched out behind me, just as ballsie as you please, thing had to be more than 2 ft long tip to tail,  so I move away, and go back to work, few minutes later there it is again, ok now this is weird, so I causually take some steps away and damn if it don't follow along with me.

I put my work gear down and sat my but on the ground and watched, it came past, paused, actually freaking paused, I reached out my hand and ran a finger along it's back, didn't bother it one bit, and then it snaked it's way along, I watched that snake for more the 20 minutes, as it probed and checked this gopher hole and that one, until it went in a really deep hole, after a few minutes it's tail began to shiver and thrash a bit and it was gone. For a while I could see spots of it in the openings created by it's activity in the gopher hole, but not for long. 

I don't know, yet, what this was meant to teach me, but I do know that it was amazing, and that I feel privliged to have witnessed it, and, for me, another example of how the Gods make themsleves known to us, we just have to be able to see it.

You are very lucky to have an encounter like this! Maybe snakes are your spirit animals, as mine are frogs. Just remember, not all snakes will react the same way as this one did, so be careful, okay.
