To be a dad is to be on call 24/7. "Look what I found. What's this. Dad, you have to come see this. Dad, Dad, Dad!" Enjoy it while it last.
Justin this is a shot just for you. We use to call these Florida browns and grass snakes. My girls found it in the water near the house. Any ideas?
These are some relaxed shots. But as the girls handled him he became a bit more active. His blood may have been running a little cold from the water.
Then he started doing this. He would puff up and this would raise his scales, giving him a different look.
Reminds me of the color in those little doves.
Forty years old and still in awe of the outdoors.
