On the last day of summer I went on a short walk to one of my usual places for snakes but before I even got there I found what I thought was a Red-Bellied Snake that had been run over by a bike. As I moved closer however it moved so I picked it up to see if I could get some decent photos with my iPod. It was clearly in distress and curled its lip upwards, a defensive behaviour I had not seen before. I released him shortly after in the direction he was headed and watched as he dispeared into the tall grass. A few meters up I came across yet another Red-Bellied Snake which looked flattened against the ground leading my to suspect that this one was run over but sure enough it moved and I managed to get some good shots of it. The second snake had such a beautiful patters with a series of black stripes running down its grey body. Once I got to where I usually find the snakes I found no such thing under cover I suppose they are all out and about this afternoon.
I'm Mac Marzolini and I created this blog for a variety of reasons, the first of course is to open a window into what is happening in my life (cause my grandmother reads this), but also to help myself catalogue some of my favorite photos from my many adventures.
