Friday Fotos – There’s a snake in the grass!

I believe this early morning visitor in our garden is a common Florida cottonmouth (water moccasin). Very poisonous.

Water moccasin taking a break in our garden.

To the left of the cypress tree trunk is the part of our backyard that’s essentially a natural bog and wetlands with heavy tree cover. Ideal for snakes. Most of the snakes on our property are common black racers but we have our share of cottonmouth and rattlesnakes too.

Happy SUNday! – Snake House

A wonderful surprise in our side garden. Looks like she found the perfect home. I believe it’s a southern black racer – a frequent resident of our garden habitats.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by! – Chris

Happy SUNday! – In the Garden

A few images of the garden after some overnight thundershowers (storms).

After 15 years of weathering our cypress fence supports a wide variety of organisms. This image was taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830. Even at 20.1 megapixels, the image doesn’t pop your eyeballs out of your head. ISO 200 but a super slow shutter speed. The limitation of the Sony is that it’s not at its best in lower light situations.

The same section of the fence but this image was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S8+

It’s hard to say which image is “better” as they are both technically correct. The Samsung shows a lot more processing and as a result, looks sharper. But is it better? The Sony shot is closer to capturing the realness of the scene.

Crepe myrtle blossoms – almost an unnatural pink but that’s the way they look. No post-processing. Sony Cyber-shot.

New growth – wonderful greens. Sony Cyber-shot.
