smiles...glad you did not kill the snake but just moved him on...that is some pretty cool found art, for sure....
I'd never kill a snake (unless, maybe, it was poisonous and in my house).
I like the fence along the path, but maybe because I'm fearful of heights. Snakes too! Last week on the towpath, I came across two dead mice. Where were the snakes then?
I don't think they eat mice once they are already dead - they like live prey.
Luckily I've never seen any snakes in Northern Ireland (as I may have said before). In fact I don't think I've ever seen a live snake in the wild - as opposed to in zoos.That last photo looks positively idyllic....
I don't see that as lucky - snakes are wonderful, helpful creatures.
Beautiful. I enjoy hiking on trails as well and taking in the serenity.
Thanks. Me, too.
The "found art" is beautiful. There is some sort of insect that does something similar here, but instead of chewing out pathways, it tunnels through the middle somehow leaving a thin paper skin on either side, so you get leaves like that one except there's a very thin bit of leaf skin left covering the tunnels. Strangely beautiful.
Oh, I've seen those, too. Lovely.
Fab photos! Love the one of the leaf! How cool is that! Art indeed!"We found lots of feathers on the walk, but I wasn't sure what bird this one belonged to. Something biggish."Wow...you're right...that is one BIG feather.When I was still living in Florida, I would see snakes all the time; they're everywhere. I'm not a snakephobe either. I'm more phobic about BUGS - HA!Thanks for the scenic walk, girl. Enjoyed!X
I tried to ID that bird on-line, but couldn't find an exact match. There are bugs that give me the heebies for sure! :-)
Not sure I would have been calm at the sight of the snake! Love that last picture.
It was just minding its own business and moved on without a quarrel.
Looks like a very nice trail! That little snake was lucky to run into a group who could appreciate its beauty instead of acting in a panic.
That snake, although you can't tell, was about four feet long. Pretty guy.
No snakes - only the snake in the grass variety - here, so i cannot prove my non-snake-phobia. Isn’t it good to go for long hikes, makes you feel on top of the world, even after a birthday. Happy belated birthday!
We were all thrilled to see it. And thanks!
Pretty area to hike in; I could do without the snake though :)betty
The snake for us was a bonus!
a walk through the nature:)
The best kind.
I'm only good with snakes I'm sure aren't poisonous. That one looks iffy to me.
Well, there are no poisonous black snakes in North America, so I had no worries. Not iffy at all.
Really? That's good to know.
Looks like a lovely hike except for the snake!!! I do love the artwork.
