Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

Weekly Photo challenge: Between. Capture something in the middle of two things. It can be a person or object, or simply the space in between. 

I did some looking on line and think this could be a small Fer de Lance snake, a very poisonous and dangerous snake. Now I wish I had taken a better photo. I was taking my computer to my “outside office” on the terrace and just grabbed my iPad which was the only camera close at hand. When I returned a short while later, it had gone. I know these snakes are in the area and I am very careful not to put my hands in piles of leaves or other places where a snake might be, but this is the first time I have actually seen one. It’s lucky it was at my house because any of my neighbors would have killed it on sight. Knowing how dangerous these snakes can be, this time I can’t blame them.

Now for something more fun - I have seen this horse many times between the road in front, the heavy equipment behind, and the rock, sand and gravel business to the left. It doesn't seem a likely place for a horse, but it seems contented to keep the vegetation under control in its little area.

This isn’t the most creative response to last week’s photo challenge but I haven’t been feeling “it” lately, whatever “it” is the inspires me to blog or pick up my camera. Once in a while I just have to put these things aside for a little while. It’s never long though before I see something and I’m excited again.

    If it was a Fer de lance, that is kind of scary. It looks like it is right by the doorway. You and Joel keep your eyes peeled.


    • Yes, it was right outside the doorway from our utility room to the back terrace. I try to always be aware of possible wildlife around us, especially living right next to the forest. If it is indeed a Fer de lance it would be the most dangerous thing we’ve seen yet.

    Hi Kris, When I was looking at your pics, I realize the name of your blog Panama, you are in Between 2 Americas right now. You could have add one Panama photo.


    • Hi Elizabeth. I’m not sure I understand your comment. Yes, we live in Panama and the vast majority of the photos are from Panama, including the ones in this post.

        Hi Kris, sorry I wasn’t clear. Since you are in Panama, Central America, you are between North and South Americas. If I was there, I would pick some photo (maybe a field) and write “I’m in between Americas” something like this. My photo for this challenge was onroute map, I was traveling between East and West coast. Your photos were nice too!


        • Ahh! ~~slapping forehead to wake up brain~~ Now I see what you mean. Yes indeed we are between two Americas. Now that you mention it, I believe the actual dividing line is the Panama Canal and I have photos of that. You also cross the continental divide on the canal, or anytime you go from one side of the country to the other. Lots of “betweens” here that I didn’t even think of. Thanks for the good ideas 🙂

  5. in costa rica and in ecuador there is a snake they call ‘mata caballo.’

    they tell me that it’s not a dangerous snake… i say, ‘you name a snake as a horse killer, yet it’s not dangerous?’


    i hope that your fer de lance has moved to a new location!



  6. I did some looking/googling around, and I think the matacaballo is a boa. It would have to be a heck of a boa to kill a horse!
    I haven’t seen the fer de lance since it left that morning. Someone commented that if there is one baby there may be others, so I am keeping my eyes open.
