thanks for saving the snake. Too many people think the only good snake is a dead one, while failing to understand their place in the eco system.

Good catch Max. Isn't he a bit late for hibernating? How are the migrating birds coming? I saw one swan, Osprey, and one Bald Eagle today. Did you checkout my "Swan and Ivy" photo? It wasn't the cover, so no one looks at it, but you might like it. I think it is better than the one that got picked for the AC.

Wonderful colors and looks like he's dressed up and ready for Fall if he had some thermals underwear on too. Glad to hear that ya'll took time to keep the little guy safe.

I saw one of these on a woods walk today. It was alive, but remained totally still, even when leaves dropped on its head. The tongue was flicking, though.

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
