A short visit with a friend

Chris was trimming some of the palm trees when he noticed a little friend inside under the flaps where the branches grow. He grabbed the kid's bug catcher and then gave Bella a great surprise.

It was a little red rat snake or corn snake. Bella got to look at it for some time while she and Chris went online to get the exact type of snake figured out. Bella was more than excited to get to be so close to the little guy.
After the visit it was time to release it back out in the yard.
There's its little head looking out. I bet it's wondering if it's safe or not. It wasn't keen on getting out in the grass so Chris decided to put it back up in a palm tree again.
There it goes back into another cozy little covey in the palm tree. Aren't the colors beautiful?
Once the head was well inside, Bella took a couple seconds to pet it. So very cool.

Ah...reminds me of when I used to drive my mom crazy as a kid picking up all the critters...
