I wish I`d had more time to shoot this squirming beauty, but I convinced the owner of it`s mild manners & hopefully I`ll get another longer opportunity.
Have a great day.

Ooh, cool. I love the eye in DSCN0090. I hope when you get some more you can do a close-up of the face so we can see the eye in more detail.

We don't have any snakes that have such nice coloring around here, though I do love the color of the blue racer. Unfortunately they always live up to their name and I've never been able to get a picture of one.

What a gorgeous snake! I got a tiny "love offering" from the gray beast I'm trying to tame out back, a lovely little garter snake no doubt moving slow from the cold. Haven't told the neighbors, they'd be out with shovels, hoe, and sack to clear out any others around here.

I just reminded the youngster today that I wanted to take more shots of his pet.
It`s hard to tell in these rushed photos but there is quite a bit of iridescence in his colors or in the highlights.

Yes it is & very gentle also.
It is very well kept.

Hi Kidspeak.
It`s great to hear from you.
I think of you often hoping you are well.
It`s ugly to know that some people think of killing as soon as they see a snake or an "other" .
The "grey beast" will eventually come around to your friendship. I`m positive.
Unless the neighborhood killers have plans for it also.
As soon as the beast realizes your safe harbor, you`ll be friends. As kids, we took in feral cats & they became family & stayed for years.
My huge dog Prince, would usually bark to come in, but often he just wanted the door opened for the cat.
He`d bark, I`d open the door, the cat would enter, & he`d stay outside.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
