The Wife and I were outside with our visiting son. We are getting the ponds and yard ready for prime weather.. I heard my wife do an OMG. So I went over to see whats up… This is what I captured. My Wife thinks it was terrible. I viewed it as a bit exciting to see how nature works live. This is the one pick I decided on. It really did not take long and the snake wanted his lunch to go and was not going to wait for me to capture him.. Got Lucky.. Soon more nature stuff.. I will have more time to play after yard work is done.. LOL..

    One off shot mate, thats for sure. What sort of snake is it? If I found a frog eating snake in my yard I think I’d freak out somewhat! Great shot thought chuck….like it!

  • Hey Simon.. Sorry but was busy.. Its a Gardner Snake. Also this guy wrote me about it. His comment was cool..
    Nice shot, how primitively persuasive. Just does not get much better. Two eyes, not far apart seeing two different worlds. Wanted to share ..

    Good capture (pardon the pun). The producers of shows like “Wild Kingdom” would be proud of this shot. But I agree with your wife OMG.

  • You remember Wild Kingdom ?? LOL. Thanks

    Excellent capture and an unique one too Chuck, prey are always swallowed head first!!

  • This was a rare one then.. Cause as he was heading for a place to be alone the frog had been swallowed…
