Scenic Florence: Glossy snake

(Special to the Independent/Steven Alexander)


Photographer Steven Alexander came across this glossy snake while he was driving through Florence.

“The snake was soaking up the heat from the road and I moved it to safety so as to avoid danger from oncoming traffic,” he said in his e-mail.
