Easy Being Green

I spotted this beautiful green snake along the trail from our house to the river and boat dock almost tripping over him. He was frozen in the center of the path and pretended he was a long green blade of grass allowing me to approach very closely. He did not move even when I decided to continue on the path and I actually had to walk around him.

I think he is smiling and maybe it is because he saw his meal just up ahead.


Do you see it? Look closely...maybe you should click on the photo and see if you are as good at finding 'Green Waldo' as the snake is. Take your time, I will wait....







It is sometimes not so easy being green.

Great shots.. and you must have an eagle eye for spotting that toad (making it a spotted toad!). ;) It's one thing to find it when you know you're searching for it in a small photo. It's quite another to notice it in that environment. My perspective or their sizes must be off though. I would have pegged that toad to be much larger than the snake.

The toad was very small and I almost stepped on him when I started across the side of the path.

Lot of green in the pics... although snakes normally scare me, this one in the picture is indeed beautiful!

Beautiful snake, toad, and deceptive grasses. The snake is the spring green of crocus-shoots and unfurling leaves. Must be all the rain we've had that fuels that unearthly color.

The little frog is so cute hiding behind the dead leaf. He looks so scared to peek out. These are wonderful photos Tabor. The snake is a beautiful green. Thanks for posting!=D
