Red-bellied Snake, Super Moon, Pheasants (20161109-14) More turtle work and a Super moon.

We had such a great time on the 8th that we decided to spend a little time on the 9th investigating a second known Snapper nesting area. So the three of us headed out, Clarence, Bizzy and I. We checked three or four openings' but only one had eggshells present.
As we continued down the tracks Clarence commented on how we this was our second beautiful day in a row we had a good opportunity to find a snake. Well we only walked another 10 minutes when this little beauty revealed itself.
This is a Red-bellied Snake, and my first ever. Also being a blog first here is the obligatory second image.
As this sighting was almost a full two weeks later than I am aware this snake has been recorded we will add a third image here. This could be arecord breaker.
Another late critter out in this second week of November is this grasshopper, why isn't he underground fiddling with the ants??
A couple of evening later I took this shot of a near Super Moon. It is the night before the Super Moon but this is still a pretty good representation.
 The next morning a couple of roosters dropped in and the lighting, for whatever reason was just beautiful.
I just love the purple that shows up in this light. These are probably our most beautiful birds.
Then a half our later one of the ladies showed up, and she tried to keep hidden.
That evening I managed to shoot the Super moon with a little colour. I don't know if this is any better shot then last night's.
I'll wrap it up here and once again encourage you to put a little "wild" in your life!
