Here's a visitor to our river cottage this weekend. He'd completed his job of clearing the cottage of mice (look closely at his full belly), headed for apuddle, had a long drink and then turned to see what I was up to with the camera. A hour os so laterheor maybe she(we weren't properly introduced)and afriend were seen in the marsh beside the cottage sunning themselves on logs.

I was going to say "wow, that must have been an unplesent surprise seeing that there..." but maybe it wasn't a surprise at all.

Either way, I'm glad you got the photos and not a bite to boot. (I do realize that if you leave them along they are generally safe.)

Nice shots and I must compliment you on a unique way of posting 4 photos in one posting. Great idea.

The subtitle has the common name. It's a black ratsnake although most folks around here just call them black snakes. This one is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet long. They're handy little fellows to have around especially at a place you close up for the winter. They sure take care of the field mice.

That was simple to do using Picasa's collage function. The pictures get cropped and pretty highly compressed but are good enough for posting snap shots like these.
