Water snake behavior

Just another thing I noted and have been wondering about...
At one point while the northern water snake was hunting around the shallow water, she poked her head out of the water, and bobbed it up and down rapidly to create a bunch of ripples.
Was she trying to see if there was a frog sitting nearby?
What else could that be about?
Had never seen anything like that before. Only lasted about a minute before she went under again.

some snakes see in infrared, so sure, go with that hypothesis! why not bounce ripples of critters to see if they are around?

how will you test it?
