Photo Hunters~ Skinny

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have to say, that I found this theme to be rather difficult. I just about gave up on participating last night, when I stumbled across a set of photos I took last summer, that I hadn't edited yet. This particular occasion, I had noticed a SKINNY little Gardener Snake in my flower bed. Even though, as a child I had no fear of snakes and up until I was about 10 I would catch them, I have developed an adversion to them. Being that one of my goals as a parent is to NOT transfer my own fears onto my child, I hurriedly asked hubby to catch the snake, and put it in a bucket so that Sugar and I could admire it.



Sugar got a real kick out of it, but she was more than happy to let her "baby snake" go back home to it's mommy after we were done looking at it.

Have a great Weekend everyone! Thanks for coming by my blog this week. I look forward to seeing all the SKINNY pictures you have shared.

Nice shot! I wouldn’t want to see it on my table!

What a great shot, Corey. The blue of the bucket is great, as well as the ridges on the bottom of the plastic. The composition really draws me in to the photograph, too.

As a kid, I always played with gartersnakes,... but wasn't until I was in my 20's the fear set in when I picked one up and it bit me. lol. Ouch! Great photo and have a good weekend.

Thanks for visiting us. We think the SKINNY Snake would have been fun to play with, but Mommy will not let us play with snakes. ~Scylla & Charybdis

alisonwonderland said...

it's good that you're trying not to pass on your phobias; a zookeeper told me that i had to do that with my daughter and my fear of snakes. good job!

Sandy C. said...

Jenty said...

Really good choice for the theme!

Rach said...

PowersTwinB said...

I have a real adversion to snakes and worms and all that stuff...but it was a good take on the theme this week! My hunt is up, come on over and drool

JesieBlogJourney said...

It's skinny. I would probably have killed it before it hurts me.
A snake bit me when I was little. Now I would kill them before they get me.

Claudia said...

Great skinny shot!
