Bull snake’s lunch

Warning: not for the squeamish. Joan noticed a rather large bull snake under the junipers near our raised beds. We watched it searching around until it darted and we heard a squeal. It quickly rolled into a coil and we saw that a small furry was caught. It wasn’t long before lunch was over and the snake was back on the prowl.

Owl enjoying the sunset 5_18_20

As usual, I was photographing the evening’s sunset when this great horned owl flew into a nearby tree. We both sat for a long while watching the twilight colors until he rose up and silently flew away.
