Its that time of year when snakes come out, so as the move around the yard fixing the retic and attending to the garden be sure to keep an eye out and make sure it really is a stick!
While doing some work in my own backyard today I discovered two different snakes. The one below hung around long enough for me to take his picture.
So – you know the deal.
– Don’t approach them (especially in bare feet)
– Stand still and let them move on
– Make a bit of noise as you move around and they will pick up the vibes in the ground and get out of there.
Personally I’d prefer to chop them in half with a spade every time I see them, but I’m not convinced I’m quick enough!
