Looking into the eyes of a snake

This is a photo of a little snake. I went on a little hike with my son. He, like me, is very into nature. I was capturing some pictures of plants. He went ahead of me several feet, came running back and told me he has a surprise for me! He hurried me over to what he found. It was a little snake just hanging out in some branches of a tree. I'm not sure who was more excited, me or him! I told him he had a great eye! I began taking the snake's picture. It was pretty to see it slither around those branches, rotating in an infinity sign. The snake didn't seem to be threatened at all. Looked like he enjoyed the attention from us.
