Garter snake

When I go birding, there are always times when to watch your step as wildlife comes in many forms and is often where it’s least expected.  This one was at Tiny Marsh.

Back Racer

As I was literally running out of a refuge for birds called Circle Bar K in Florida …. I almost stepped on this guy … racing for my plane my la t shot was of a Black Racer … how ironic was that?

This female Snapper was carrying around about six inches of clay packed onto it’s back.  I often wonder if I should have removed the clay, what a heavy burden to carry around.  On the path near Devils Glen there were three females looking to lay eggs.  snpping turtle
