  1. Oh my! That snake is beautiful. Posted 4 years ago
    1. Yes, I was astounded when I saw it, but as I am not very familiar with Snakes, couldn't tell if its venomous or not. If only I am more experienced with snake handling, would have taken a selfie with it! ha ha Posted 4 years ago

    1. Truly agree, Mike.
      Have quite a few friends at Facebook who were not too happy each time I feature a Snake picture as my Cover Page.
      Lots of Snakes can be truly gorgeous :)
