Butterfly shot in the wild
I shot this one in the wild at the arboretum near Memorial Park (Houston). I field dressed it and tied it to the bumper of my car for the trip home. It’s now in the freezer as I write this.

Can anyone id the snake?

Can anyone id the snake?

This snake surprised me. I barely saw it rush into the brush to my right. From my left there was movement of a hand sized object which I could never zero in on. It was just a blur moving from left to right using the small trees in front of me as way points. It would land and before I could focus upon it it was already launching off for the next tree. I lost sight of it as it went into the brush when I heard a squealing like that a mouse would make. I peeled back the underbrush and saw this.
