snake in the grass

We’ve spotted this little guy (or girl?) around the yard a few times this summer. If a black cat crossing your path is bad luck, what is a black snake crossing your path?

I’ve recently (since taking these shots) decided I need a better zoom lens. I’m not really scared of snakes, but when you have one eye closed and you’re peering through a little camera hole you aren’t in an optimum runforyourfreakinglife position. I figured that one out when he/she let me snap a few shots, before jumping (they don’t have legs, yet they can jump?? NOT COOL!) like two feet into the nearest bush. I had a mild heart attack. Nothing major.

    I would have to move. In fact I would have a major heart attack and then move.

      That’s how Brad feels about snakes. He and Ezra went out to the car and it slithered across the walkway right infront of them. He about died! I hope this doesn’t affect your willingness to come visit us!
