That close-up is too close up for me! I am truly scared of her. Not snakes, other reptiles... just THOSE.

Nice pic....look at those scales. Just like a T. Rex or something.

Oh, and now that the 500 acre ranch next to us took down all their cedars, the deer have moved in to our measly 10 acres and are eating everything in sight.
We have a good sized herd of both deer and elk. The elk just kinda cruise around and stay out of stuff, the deer are the problem children. They eat all the apples they can reach, meander thru my melon patch and eat the tops off of my tomato plants.

I'm thinking of starting a garden just for them.

Squirrels and a Red-bellied woodpecker enjoying orange fruit off a tree in the woods.....about the size of a golf ball, the fruit was soft, maybe a persimmon?

Anyway, they appeared quite happy with their lucky discovery.

Does she live in Sedona (90 miles north of Phoenix)? That picture looks like it was taken there.
