Another day and another capture just before the sun sets.
I am not a fan of spiders. Generally speaking, if the critter has more legs than I have then I’d prefer to keep it at a distance. However, I am a fan of snakes. If feeding snakes weren’t so heart wrenching, I’d let my boys have a snake as a pet. Alas, I had a pet snake for years, and I just can’t deal with the death of another mouse.
While outside with the boys (and camera), I saw our neighborhood rat snake crossing the street. I’ve seen her several times, but this time I had my camera with me. And, when she was sliding by me, I reached out to pat her, which put her in defense mode. Brilliant!
