Is that a snake you can see? Why yes, yes it is. To be more precise that is a very angry, rather large, very venomous tiger snake I almost stood on (hence the angry part) whilst trying to get a good angle for the hen pic. You're welcome ;)
I live in Australia. We have venomous snakes in our house yard. And the car shed. (and once rather memorably in the grapevine.....but that's a story for another day)
But we have windmills and pretty days too:
Also to all the north americans who freak out over our numerous poisonous spiders and snakes, I would like to point out: I can take on a spider or snake with a shovel. I'd like to see you try that with a grizzly bear. I think I've won that argument. Mind you I've never actually tried to take on a grizzly bear with a shovel.....maybe it's easier then it would at first appear?
But seriously snake vs bear? Give me the snake every time.
