Here’s another “classic” Friday Fotos gallery, as we await our blog editor’s return from paternity leave. Arizona is home to a lot of snakes, and you showed us many of them in this gallery, which first appeared last summer.

Regular Friday Fotos will resume next week. Have a great weekend!

Friday Fotos: Snakes Slithering Across Arizona

And immediately I regretted it.
I thought how paltry, how vulgar, what a mean act!
I despised myself and the voices of my accursed human education.

And I thought of the albatross
And I wished he would come back, my snake.

 For he seemed to me again like a king,
Like a king in exile, uncrowned in the underworld,
Now due to be crowned again.

 And so, I missed my chance with one of the lords
Of life.
And I have something to expiate:
A pettiness.

 —an excerpt from the D.H. Lawrence poem, “Snake.”
