A Frog & a Snake Walk into a Bar…

I don’t have a joke.  I just liked that title.

I went out to clean the Traeger grill this afternoon and as I lifted off the cover this little fellow hopped out into the grass. The husband was mowing the lawn and hadn’t reached the section Mr. Frog was now occupying.  Fearing a slaughter I attempted to catch him.  He hopped onto the side of a Homer bucket that holds an heirloom tomato and scrambled up into the plant. Well, how very convenient for me and my camera!

Later in the afternoon I went for a walk.  Attempting to offset the homemade blackberry pie we’re having for dessert in a bit. This guy slithered across my path.  I’m happy to report that I did not screech or do a little dance.  But, my camera settings were all wrong, so I wasn’t able to capture a nice, clear close-up.  What I didn’t appreciate about Mr. Snake was the fact that, after he slithered across my path and got into the grass, he popped his head up to see where I was.  Creepy.  That’s when this shot was taken:

Have I mentioned lately that I love my new camera?  And the skills I’ve recently gained in my manual exposure class?  Not saying I’m an expert by any means, but I feel like I’m getting some pretty cool photos all with my little own hands…auto need not apply.  Happy.
