A Visitor

Great excitement last night. We had a visitor!! Not that a visitor is all that unusual, but this one got the dogs going mad, Don yelling to Mark to get the dogs inside and me racing for the camera.

Seen on our verandah at dusk - a red-bellied black snake. The poor thing was more terrified of us than the other way around.

Ollie of course kept wanting to get back out there to tell the snake what he thought of it - from a distance thank goodness. It wasn't a huge fellow, but big enough to make a little dog pretty ill. We have a lot of frogs around our ponds at the moment and the snake was probably on his way home after tea.
And speaking of frogs. We finally have frogs eggs and tadpoles in our ponds. Very exciting!
