(Two images) Look at the first image and see if you can spot what my son discovered in the woods. Although not the best pictures, I had to be quick. No time for framing!
Did you see it? The bottom image shows the tiny baby snake. I thought it was a worm at first until Ian said “look at the head!” Small as a leaf. Is it a Coral snake? Not sure. But wow, what a spot. Good one, Ian!

Is that a little brown face above that log?
I see the snake, but I wasn’t sure if it was plant or animal at first. And it really looks like a face on the log beneath that leaf.
Brenda! It’s been ages! So glad to see you. 🙂
I think I see the face you see. Funny how our mind works when we don’t know exactly what we’re looking at, eh?
Yes, long time since I found you in my reader. I follow too many people. And I don’t have nearly enough time to keep up with my reader. I bumble along, though. It’s like running into an old friend at the mall. I’m always happy to see them!! LOL
I know what you mean! I haven’t been posting that much recently because I’m so busy. We are in the process of getting our house ready to sell to build a house. Great finally running into you. 🙂
Oh my. Surely your circumstances warrant a little zoloft and some pints of Ben and Jerry’s. I’ll send you some prayers. 🙂 Perhaps the woodland treks will keep you sane. Or perhaps you are made of sterner stuff and I. 😉
Kids don’t miss a thing! Here’s a rhyme to Remember the coral snakes stripes since it’s poisonous. ..
Red on yellow and you’re a dead fellow.
Red on black, you’re alright Jack.
Thanks for the rhyme!
Excellent, Ian and Schelley! 🙂
Schelley, take a look here: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology/fl-snakes/list/tantilla-coronata/ to see whether that is a match…much more benign than a coral snake! The reference says they are uncommon; nice find Ian!
Thanks for the link, Mic! It was a rare find indeed, and I’m so happy it was only the size of a worm. 😀
