    Beauty and the Beast

    Little bit of nature at the Deep Creek Conservation Park, South Australia:
    Beauty and the Beast
    But this beauty comes with it's own dangers:
    Beauty and the Beast
    My wife walked straight past it and my brother spotted it, Luckily for us it went back the way it had come and we left it in peace, It was a brown snake, responsible for the occasional fatality, if not treated quickly, we were about one and a half hours from the nearest hospital and would have had to negotiate some bushy terrain to get out quickly.

    No wonder some of the National Geographic photographers really wear heavy leather boots to protect themselves with this unforeseen dangers. I'm glad you're all unharmed. Nice scenery btw.

    Thank you Peter, absolutely beautiful, reminds me of driving down Baja, Mexico, 45 years ago. So pristine, my kind of place. I must come see it one day, it will be on my bucket list now.

    When I first opened it, I thought I was on Santa Catalina Island chasing wild burros again, but dodging rattlesnakes and wild boar instead of snakes and black mambas.
