i would not have even been that close to one of those things. I will handle non posionous snakes, but for some reason, venom freaks me out.

I like Michigan, all you worry about getting bit by is dogs, mosquitos or bee's.

"In theory yes, however they seem to hunt me out. Last year on holiday I had a green tree snake literally strike out of a garden I walked past and was viciously snapping at my ankles - luckily managed to jump out of the way just in time - lots of colourful language used!! This is the 2nd time this has happened to me.

Last Xmas we also had a giant Carpet Python in the garage playing with our two small dogs, which we managed to grab away in time. The snake then tried pushing on the screen door to get into the house.

We live in a surburban backyard - not in the bush.
However I know many people in Australia who have never seen a snake except for in captivity."

You are soo lucky!


A long time ago I had lots of gear - now I make do with one camera & one lens.;)
