Sunny with a chance of snakes


Today’s weather prediction: Sunny with a chance of snakes. Photographed outside Daylesford today, heading away from us with any luck.

Can I recommend postponing hiking on narrow tracks until autumn? If you are a walker, I can point you in the direction of firetracks which are wider, so that you can clearly see where to put your feet. Or just go with the excitement and danger. Whichever way you are inclined, be careful please.

What to do if you see a snake: stand still or move slowly away. It has probably seen you too, knows you don’t love it and wants to get away from you.
