......corn snakes are beautiful....MANY yrs ago my then boyfriend and I would go "snake hunting" but only to capture for him to keep for awhile in aquariums. My first find was the orange corn snake.
this one was orange too- from a distance it looked like a coil of chorizo on the road

some kids were standing nearby waiting for the schoolbus and screamed when i picked it up.

Blue Jays, Cardinals and Mockingbirds flying around, eating mulberries and slplashing in the birdbath.

I don't want to meet this girl in a dark alley. Canon had loaned me a lens to try out. I bought one.

Funny you should show this, Nomad. This morning, I didn't take my usual walk as I had an early doctor's appointment. On my way out of the community, I noticed a medium-sized alligator swimming in one of our "lakes". On the way back in, I saw he had made his way up onto the shore and was sunbathing. I sure hope nobody disturbed him.

PS - yesterday morning, I went out to do my daily scooping of leaves and buds out of our fountain, only to discover that some animal had left me a "present" in it - he pooped! If I ever catch whoever did that.............

Two were hanging from the tree. Wasn't sure whether to get out of my car or not..... They didn't even move when I flashed the lights and honked the horn.

Here on the mountain, the coons have
always moved on when they figgered out thar isn't anything good to eat outside here, anymore. They eat tadpoles & bullfrogs too.

Best of Luck to you darlin

It sounded like the snort of a horse and I looked up and saw this antlered deer running across the yards across the street and I followed it with my surprised eyes and he ended up at the corner where about 10 more deer were and then they all crossed the street together. It was vividly burned in my mind how pretty it was.
