I almost forgot the snake. She/he came to visit 8-21-08. I had no clue what is was, but looked it up.

Mud snakes grow to an average of 40 to 54 inches. Mud snakes are mostly aquatic, and nocturnal, inhabiting the edges of streams and cypress swamps, among dense vegetation or under ground debris. Their primary diet consists of amphiumas, but they will also eat a variety of other amphibians, including salamanders, frogs, and sometimes fish.

We had had a great deal of rain and I think that's how it ended up at my house I think. I kept him/her less than 24 hours and let it go in the back yard by the back fence.

I must say it did not bother to say goodbye.... and Yes Susan- he/she was mad. I did not want to let it go in the front yard as I did not want it to get run over.

    Lovely looking little guy!! We have garter snakes, among others, in this area and their colorings are very beautiful, too. I love the background in this shot.. it sets him off perfectly!!

    Snakes are hard to capture as they are moving constantly but you got a good one here.

    I keep coming back to this picture! There is something so symmetrical about it. It's creepy and not creepy at the same time. Very nice capture.

    We found a Black Mamba at our back door the other night! Well actually Samson the Great (our Siamese) did. Thank goodness it was still a juvenile i.e. around 50cm in length. They are one of the most deadly snakes in Africa. Fortunately it had just eaten something so was very sluggish and therefore Samson was also very lucky, as it is likely it would have biten him. My husband hates snakes (and so do I), but neither of us like killing things either. So out came the bucket and broom. We swept it into the bucket and took it across the road to a vacant block and let it go. My camera was the last thing I thought of reaching for!
