Grass Snake

This little fella was just above my head, about 6 feet up, in my crepe myrtle bush. He had just finished shedding his skin when I noticed him. There is another pic with almost all of his body on my Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/coltpixy/
He is the biggest grass snake I have ever seen. Over 3 feet long.

resin magnets

The one on the left with the seahorse is going into my "learned a lesson by making a mistake" file. Sometimes I have happy accidents when experimenting. This was not one of those occasions.
The ones with the maps have tiny hearts floating above them. I am going to attach rare earth magnets to the backs of them and send them off to special people who live in those locations soon.
I love working with resin!
