Red-bellied Black Snake goes out on a limb

Doesn't look like much, just a Red-bellied Black Snake less than a metre up in a tree. But it's the first time I've ever seen the species rise from the ground like a tree snake and go out on a limb. Didn't last long. Almost fell off twice. Finally more or less crashed off in the clumsiest of dismounts. And any prey was long gone. Nature doesn't always reach the heights.
