I saw my first brown snake yesterday... sure it was a baby, about as thick as my little finger and maybe 30cms long, but it was the first snake I've seen at our new place and I'm not ashamed to admit that it rattled me.
It wasn't hiding in the bushes, or under a rock - it was sunning itself right in the middle of the concrete path. Our little dog actually stood right over the top of it without even realizing it was there, and I FREAKED! I called our dog frantically, trying to get him away from it - but being the happy little chappy that he is (and very non-observant), he just got excited that his mama was calling him and started dancing around RIGHT ON TOP OF THE SNAKE!
Mr Snake naturally freaked out too and after getting tangled in dancing dog legs, hightailed it into the nearest shrubbery. Which alarmingly, is right beside the house.
Luckily he didn't seem to have taken a bite of our fluffy little dog, as I watched him closely for the rest of the day, and he seems to be fine. We did see a few snakes at Ormeau, but never any of the brown variety. For all I know, it could have been just a brown coloured, non-venomous tree snake, but who knows - I just know that I hate snakes!
Better get used to it, living at Tamborine I guess!
Todays blog feature is of Kathy and her fabulous family! Such a fun loving, happy group of people and we had a great afternoon exploring our location. I think that beautiful flowers, beautiful people and beautiful golden-hour light is a photographers match made in heaven!
Here are just a few of my favourites from this awesome afternoon...
Thanks guys for sharing such a lovely afternoon with me!
