Handsome Lil' Fella...

Sooooooo, I was driving home from work, window down, enjoying the warm weather, and I turned onto the paved portion of Old Good Hope Rd.....

I was driving a little quicker than I should have I reckon (blame the city! they're the ones who paved it!) since I was on the home stretch, and I passed a big ol' snake in the road. Oh that's neat, that's a pretty nice snake there.....a SNAKE!!! I hit the brakes, put that car in reverse....sure enough....a nice snake all right...a COPPERHEAD! I was so excited. I slammed the car in park and grabbed my camera out of my purse. Yes, I had my camera. And yes, I did get out of my car in the middle of the road to take a photo of a venemous snake. I did. I truly did. And I was thrilled. It made my day!! =)

See how handsome he is? Too good-lookin' to pass by... :)




After his photo shoot I got back in the car, and promptly ran over the poor thing. Bless his heart. If only he weren't venemous...
