When was the last time

you saw a snake suspended in a spider web?


Pulled into the garage and saw this tiny perfectly beautiful snake, no more than three and a half inches long, suspended in a spider web at the base of a stool. The web’s owner is just barely visible on the left side of the stool leg.

I was afraid the snake, a southern ringneck, would be already dead. But it wasn’t. I carefully pulled it out of the web and spent ten minutes trying to get the very sticky web unstuck from the miniature snake’s face. Now that’s a first for me. Have you ever had to despiderweb a snake?

P.S. The black salve worked brilliantly on my thorny finger. I kept it on, and covered, overnight. When I woke up and took off the covering, there were three minuscule open flaps in my finger skin where the thorns had been painlessly drawn out in the night. Amazing—two (thorn-free) thumbs up!
