Discovering your emotions

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Emotion

Can you find your emotion among this lot? No responsibility taken for any mental scaring, they are your emotions. Perhaps I can facilitate some change. Try and stop for a while and appreciate the colours or patterns of the photo that builds a flight response or just stop on the photo that makes you go aahhh and soak up the emotion

I’ll come to your emotional rescue

When is a carpet not a carpet?

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Carpet

When it is a Carpet Snake!

Carpet Snakes are Pythons and are non-venomous gentle creatures. They rely on squeezing their prey and swallow them whole. It’s not to say they don’t bite as they do. I have been bitten as I dragged a Carpet Snake backwards from my chook pen away from the baby chickens. It was a bit miffed I guess about missing out on dinner. I was probably too complacent but juggling a three meter snake and a torch with squawking chooks I took my eye off the snake and he whipped around at lightning speed and bit my hand. Just a bit of blood as they have backwards facing fangs. A short walk back into the bush well away from the chooks and I deposited him to slither away and find another place to eat.

These images are from my besties. Carpet Snakes make great biological pest controllers.
