Snakes alive - and disturbing the Peaceful

For all snakes lovers out there (both of you), Water Python at breakfast on Peaceful Dove.

Bird ambushed after dropping in for drink at puddle beside track.

About 50 minutes from strike (just missed it) to satisfied smile (pardon anthropomorphism) at Melaleuca viewing area in the Townsville Town Common.

Elsewhere, Black Whipsnakes playing romantic ring-a-rosy ...

...and another so intent on sunning it allowed approach to within two metres without more than  casual flickering of tongue.

Bonus for those who got this far, pet Macaw flying 200 metres from Cairns owner giving bird some exercise while visiting the Common a week or so ago.
