Playing Dead

Had that primeval feeling you get when you spot something significant out of the corner of your eye, in this case a grass snake and only about four feet away, half hidden in the undergrowth. Took several photos, watching flies walk all over it, including on the eyes without any movement. I concluded it was dead so moved in closer for a better look, but it wasn't dead, just pretending, and slithered off quickly! Judging by its large size I'm guessing this to be a female.
