Project Black #10 ~ Snake

This is my Project Black post # 10.

~for more black posts go here!~



I saw this guy last year when I was doing some gardening work. This is a black Indigo snake and I knew he was non poisonous so I wasn't afraid to move in close...

( OOPS...Charles just told me this snake looks like a Black Racer..... I thought
not- because it didn't Race Away real fast like they usually do!
Anyway-
no black snakes in Fl are poisonous, I have read!)

He was more afraid of me than I was of him and I knew he wouldn't hang around for long.
I quickly went to get my camera and got a few pictures of him on this log before he slithered away!

I always like these unexpected encounters with the the critters that share our world.

Don't you? :)

Wow...I had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago. I took a video of it.

I was sitting in my chair looking out at the pool and saw the three cats all together looking at something. They were following the snake as it was winding its way around the pool.

I'm not a big fan of snakes, so I took a broom and escorted it out the door.

Fred,

We get snakes pretty often here in the country. I have posted about them several times- and some with my cats reaction to them, too!

I don't mind them if I know they are safe. Altho I have never picked one up , on my own, I HAVE touched them! (LOL- brave, huh!!)

thanks for coming over,


Junie

Mmmmm... Unexpected encounters with critters... No, can't say I am. :-) With butterflies and dragonflies yes. But with critters, no.

Junie, You made my hair stand up when I clicked on the picture. I am deathly afraid of any kind of snake! I could never get close enough to take a picture of one.

LOL- Thanks, all you girls!!

Actually, tho, if you learn about snakes and can identify the good ones from the bad (poisonous or not- that is!) then you can enjoy them more.

Mercifully, no snakes near me so far. This guy reminds me of Speedy, the snake my first ever boyfriend had. Speedy seldom ever moved. He was a garter snake, I think. It's been a million years since then. Lord, I'm old. I enjoyed your The Who post and the video.

I have to say...I wouldn't be too thrilled to run into ANY kind of snake Junie....they kind of 'oog' me out. You're a lot braver than I am.

I know I've told you this before...but I just LOVE your new blog header (banner) with the roses....it's just SO beautiful. ~Joy

Snakes are NOT my cup of tea and I cringe when I see them.
