Snakes alive!

According to wiki 
The Eastern Brown Snake is the second most venomous land snake in the world.

Sharyn & I were enjoying a pleasant morning tea when one slithered past our feet less than a couple of metres away.

He was hunting for lizards and had the scent of one behind  this rock wall.

While peering into a crevice between the rocks it suddenly thrashed it's body and disappeared completely. At the same time a copper backed lizard dashed out from the other side and headed for cover elsewhere.

The Eastern Brown emerged, still hungry, but ready to strike. Shortly afterwards it hide itself behind the same rock, waiting for the lizard to return.

I didn't do any wall building for a couple of days.
