What a lucky day yesterday! We just happened to be finishing a late lunch on the patio and something caught my eye on the fence.
It was a parrot snake, and I think it’s the most beautiful snake I’ve ever seen. I was so lucky to spot it because if it had moved to the plants, it would have blended in so well I may not have noticed it.
I love snakes. I think they are beautiful and fascinating, and are part of the ecosystem that keeps things in balance. This snake is not venomous and is not dangerous to people. These snakes live mainly in trees and eat lizards, frogs, and small birds. There are a number of varieties of parrot snakes, all green and very beautiful, but if you look for more information you will also see some that look slightly different.
How lucky we were to have seen this beautiful snake, and many thanks to the snake for patiently waiting while we took multiple photos.
