A squeeky encounter
I am not trying to emulate Tony's exploits last year -(this was my favorite story) or even Duncan's meetings with different ones along the track (no pictures in this one but the descriptions were enough). Please note that some blogs leave an indelible impression! Ok - to get back to the story - a few minutes ago I heard a squeeky noise coming from somewhere in a clump of Golden Cane palms. We all investigated - cat, dog and me! in that order! Would I need to protect my pets - or protect my wildlife! Well it turned out to be neither but I did get both cat and dog well out of my way. There was a frog half way down the throat of a snake and protesting loudly! That was the squeeky noise! Pen and tie up the animals and grab the camera - but I was too slow to get the frog in the snake's mouth - just a photo of the lovely pattern as the snake slithered further into the shelter of the palm. A green tree snake I think but who knows what the frog was! It's long gone!
