ANOTHER McCOY

This little McCoy is in pretty good shape apart from the tail.
The tail has been modified.
It is about 4" shorter than the dimensions on the deck suggest.

SNAKE AND GLOSS


Sitting down on the deck having a coffee after glossing this log.
Could hear a quiet rustling under me.
I thought it was the skinks running over the fallen leaves.
As I got up to check the board I turned around to see
this 1.5 metre Diamond Python basking in the sun
not a metre from me.
