photographing and learning about wildlife
A bunch of birds were fussing and bouncing around in the bushes in the back corner of my yard. Having heard that kind of ruckus before, I immediately thought snake, and sure enough this big guy (4-5ft.) was heading for cover. It rapidly slithered into a large pot of aloe vera, giving me time to get my camera. I caught it as it stuck its head back out to see if the coast was clear.
