A Visitor and a Gift
As we were packing up our yard sale the other day, this hawk landed on the edge of the roof and stayed there for a very long time, then he flew off and landed in a tree. Next thing you know he landed on our neighbor's lawn like he caught something. Even though nothing was there he hopped around. He seemed to be pretending to have caught something.
Later Gary brought me a gift he found in the yard. A complete snake skin from a young snake. He's about one and half feet in length. Sorry to my visitors who don't like snakes, but it's a curiosity to me to see the skin. It's soft to the touch and light as a feather and yet it doesn't fall apart when touched. Delicate but strong.
The scales are very visible, even the eyes are easy to see. I wonder what type of snake it came from. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
