I've seen more grass snakes in the last couple of months than in my whole life previous. I'm guessing that with ponds low on water and the incredible heat perhaps making them more active, they just seem to be popping up everywhere for me.

This photo of the week sent in by Steve Norfolk is a lovely one, as you can see the whole snake submerged and keeping cool. Most of the grass snakes I've seen recently aren't anywhere near as big, or as wet!

Have you seen more reptiles than usual recently? Let us know in the comments below.

Have a great weekend everyone, but slap on the suncream!
