Wild Wednesday ....
We have been blessed for the past few days with incredible weather ... especially for mid-December. Lots of sunshine and warm temps.
That said ... we got out at lunch time for a quick walk at Housenick Memorial Park. Bet you didn't see that coming! :-)
As we were getting towards the end of our walk Richard all of a sudden and surprisingly said "Snake"! And I was there in a heart beat as I simply love snakes and was indeed surprised that one would be out of it's winter home below ground. I guess he/she also wanted to take advantage of the warmth. I got as close as my camera lens (300mm) would allow and took lots of pictures. I've added another one in extra that shows the whole snake. This is a common garter snake and was only about 3-4 feet long.
Thanks to Cailleach for keeping Wednesday's wild!
