Coral Snake

Coral Snake
Yup, it's a coral snake. We tried to chase it into the lower field of the good house, but we lost it about ten feet from the edge of the bluff.

I'm torn between wishing it wasn't there and being totally psyched that I have a coral snake. In its favor is that it's quite non-aggressive. There were three of us chasing it and all it wanted to do was to get away.

Only one of the photos was in focus. I need to get the autofocus fixed on my camera, this is where it comes in handy. (Note to all: In case you didn't know it, hitting your camera with a pick axe is bad for the autofocus.) In addition, I had my new video camera with me and there was a person on the sidelines to hand it to, but I never thought of getting it out. It's too bad I didn't. It would have made a great video.

I love my snake boots.

There's something exciting/attractive about having a critter on your land that can kill you--that adrenalin rush thing. OTOH, then you have to be careful *every time*. At least coral snakes are beautiful. No amount of aesthetic adjustment makes a western diamondback rattlesnake beautiful.

I'd rather have a bobcat or a mountain lion.

But--what you see is what you get, and you got a pretty.

It's nice to have a friend who so totally understands. :-)
