Hey,
 
last year I saw a Camberwell Beauty over EF and I followed it for about an hour hoping it would come below about forty feet but not once Cry
 
Ben I really like that pic of the two grassies, is that one pic or did you stitch two separate ones together? If its one, it's great that they stayed still for you like that, they're a great snake, true posers!
