Don't let him fool you...he was no pussycat!!
and even more important...I don't like snakes!!! but actually got close to him
Touch him?...no way! photograph at a distance...a pleasure

Hope that some of you may enjoy him

My thanks to Carol and Cathy for your User Awards on the Gecko

Still tipping down with rain here, when will it stop?...there really cannot be much more up there, can there?

Have a great weekend

fine capture Lillian don't have much time for them myself was on a site in Borneo and went to test an outside sensor mounted on a pole there was a small viper coiled round the pole which I did not see until its wee red tongue came out and I did about 10 backward somersaults in a second lol
