we saw our first snake yesterday afternoon. a tree snake. i have no idea if they are harmless or not and really don’t care. it’s a snake. it lives in a tree. yuck. you know how i was yammering on and on about my tree envy and how i want a tree because everyone else has a tree – i’m not so sure about that anymore. it seems that without a tree i might be able to continue on without a tree snake. and since those full grown trees have a tendency to get quite tall – taller than me – it seems it might just be possible that a tree snake could fall out of one. and land on my head. i’m repulsed just thinking about it.
don’t worry – the snake isn’t being crushed by the motorcycle tire. it took it’s slithery self away as soon as I snapped this shot. and, yes, it was quite brave of me to get that close – I didn’t even zoom.
