moments in focus…

rain?

 

Today it rained.  That’s a big deal around here.  Only one other time, since February, has it rained. I am using the term ‘rain’ rather loosely, water did come down from the sky but not for long.  I managed to take the picture of the rain drops before it quit.

The snake was discovered by one of our, no, strike that- ‘my’ cats.  I could hear her meowing outside, not her normal meow (if you have a cat, you know what I mean).  I followed the sound to find her reaching into a small opening between two potted plants on our porch.  I picked her up, she was not happy about this, took her inside and grabbed my camera.

    Nice shots. For a moment I thought you had a Fortean experience and it had rained snakes. At least the cat didn’t bring it in the house. We had a cat that did that once.

    • Yes, we would not want it in the house! Cats do like to show off their finds:)

  2. Yikes! You are brave to get so close for this shot. I like it though! You snapped it just at the right time to get that little tongue.
