The snake trail

On a recent trip to the Fischland-Darss-Zingst Peninsula (German Baltic coast), I came across various specimens of grass snake (Natrix natrix), a glorious sighting. Concealed under the dry ferns bordering the trail, the non-venomous snakes were busy mating and let me take a few pictures of them from a very close distance.
