The Predators Are Out

Found this sneaky thing lurking in the corner of the duck pen!

Evidently he had visited the pond first and ate one of my bull frogs!

He won't be eating anymore!

This squirrel was carefully observing the photographing of the snake, which for those of you who do not recognize him right off the bat,  is a cotton mouth water moccasin. They are an aggressive snake, and the only good one is a dead one.  The squirrel wasn't quite sure it was dead, and kept chattering at me as if to say, you better stay away from that thing. 

It is a good idea to stay away from snakes when you can, but if they are wanting to live among you... well, it is just best to take them out.   Otherwise you might step on them in the night...

Squirrels may gossip about snakes, their bad habits and actions, but somebody has to take them out, whether they are dangerous or not.
