thanks for the compliment Kay. the funny part is I am very afraid of snakes and being a guy that is 6 feet and
around 230 pounds I get some funny looks. I did find out that if I stomped my foot he would stick his tongue out. he was about 10 feet away on a lily pad and my back was out and I could not move for a while.
and then he appeared. after about 5 minutes a sparrow with a dragon fly in his mouth jumped right over him and then I shot the bird and got out of there (with the camera)

have a great day
