Spring has Sprung!

Nice Springtime trip down to S. FL.
Few FL Kings, sweet SK and a couple nice red rats.
But the coolest find was this "hypo" banded water snake.
Road cruising in the early evening I ran across 3 normal water snakes.
They were all typical dark with banded side marking.
When I first spotted this snake at night my first reaction was red rat.
But turned out to be a "hypo light phase" banded.

All snakes release right were they were found!

Pics of FL Kings. Hard work to locate these guys.
But well worth the sweat. LOL
First time finding a SK while road cruising. Nice wide yellow bands!

Everglade Rat Snake! Great to see these guys around.
Also several black racers, ringnecks, glass lizards and a tons of gators soaking up the warm FL sun.

Lastly, a road side memorial.
I stood there and thought about what might have happen here.
The writing was all in Spanish.
Another horrible crash where lives were lost in an instant?
I said a small prayer for the families and realized, everyday is a gift from above.
Know Jesus today, tomorrow may be to late! Don't leave earth without Him!
God Bless. mike

Man, how the heck do you catch glass lizards without them dropping their tails? I've stopped picking them up when I find them because I just hate it when they do that.
