Great capture!
Could be mother sending her hatched young out to fend for themselves?
Nice picture but dangerous animals.
Was this photo taken from a safe distance?
Thanks for viewing. These are not just hatched snakes, way too big. I believe that they ar male snakes swarming the female.
These water snakes are very common in FL and are not poisonous, not dangerous. However, they are ofter mistaken for the poisonous water moccasin (cotton mouth,) which is dangerous.
I was approximately 10-15' from them.
