Three beautiful snakes from this weekend's fishing trip. A big Nerodia watersnake that I moved off the road. A gartersnake that was startled along the creek. A neonate Nerodia that was hunting minnows underwater.

We've had such a dry summer that I haven't seen many timber rattlesnakes. This yearling is the only one I found in a boulder field where I normally find many.

I just moved from Montana to Texas, so I have been seeing all sorts of critters that are new to me! One of my favorites is this monster fishing spider! It's about 2". They don't make spiders this big in Montana!

We just got a litter robot and so far it is great. It came put together and all we had to do was check to make sure everything was as the booklet that came with it said to do. It takes up some area but not more than what we were using before. Will ...
