I meant to post this yesterday for #WorldSnakeDay but I wasn’t able to get around to it. My hope is that people who see my posts (not just this one but on a daily) can see that snakes are beautiful animals and not the scary creatures they’re assumed to be.
My photo choice to contribute to this is probably my favourite Eastern Foxsnake photograph I have taken to date. They can be a hard species to take pictures of, especially when trying to include the habitat in the background. But with a fisheye lens and some patience I was able to capture this picture of a stunning male and the habitat he calls home.

We would make a bet that most of our guests who come on safari to Kenya know what this means! 'Hakuna Matata'... It's means 'no worries' (for the rest of your days...) to those Lion King fans among you.
But did you know that the inspiration for the Lion King, and for Pride Rock was @boranaconservancy?
Check out their Instagram for their amazing wildlife and work to keep it safe.
Rescued this little Gurrawung (magpie) and a big Wahrgung (crow) today on my way home. They’d been fighting on the road and got hit by a car.
Let me grab them, wrap them up and carry them like babies no worries, but attacked the vet and drew blood
Took my first trip up to the Yorkshire dales at the weekend. It's safe to say I wasn't dissapointed, especially when the sun began to set!

This stunning shot captures one of our ‘Coral Trees’. They are used as nurseries to propagate fragments of branching corals, to be later harvested and transferred to our ARC Reefs to rehabilitate our reef crest.

Name that plant!
This hip-to-chest flower-height species is related to Lobelia, common on higher pH (less acid) soils.
Flowering can last most of the summer, though I'm unsure how long any individual flower or plant lasts - so plan to make it one of your summer time pals.
This flower marks the beginning of the really hot mid-summer dirge I'm a not huge non-fan of (and why I lurk the high country more so in midsummer).
