    H'm... on the last pic I'm rooting for the snake. He looks very determined.

    I've always sorta wondered... Alfred, Lord Tennyson is supposed to be a poetry genius or something, but he can't punctuate his name correctly.... not to be disrespectful, just my musings...

    LOL. Had to look at the pics twice to figure out what both were. I got the second pic the first time, but the first one had me there for a moment.

    Did you take those pictures yourself?

    I think the praying mantis and the snake both got what they wanted. I've never seen a praying mantis eat a big ol' bee like that though, always something smaller.

    The frog and the snake kind of blended together I almost couldn't tell them apart, which made it hard to figure out what the picture was of.
