Photographer Sam McMillan titled this contribution "A Snake Named Kaa," writing:

Kaa is a fictional character from The Jungle Book stories written by Rudyard Kipling. Kaa is one of Mowgli's mentors and friends. I found this Kaa at Santa Margarita Lake on a afternoon photo session.

While Kipling described Kaa as a long, yellowish Indian rock python, we're not sure what species this beauty is. Do any of you know?
