This week I was working in the front garden and I startled this little guy (or should I say it scared the heck out of me) This snake was around three feet long and from what I can see, it looks like it's a Black Racer. A harmless snake that feeds on small animals.
I updated my front garden, mostly taking out the old bromeliad plants and keeping the little pups. The front of the house is the only sunny area in my garden, so is mostly planted with succulents, cactuses, and bromeliads.
The snake loves my Staghorn fern.
These bromeliads flowers are a little finicky, some years I don't get any flowers but this has been a good winter.
It is going to be a good summer for the Brasilian Red.
The Zebras are starting to come back for the summer season.
This little guy is a Gulf Fritillary caterpillar.
