Lovely moon pics. The tree limbs on its face add a lot to its beauty.
Is that your snake, Tim?
Thanks, KT. Yes that’s Blue. We raised her from a new born. She’s 20 years old, and about about 9 feet long.
She’s lovely, but I don’t think I would want a snake in my house, even a caged one. Does she and your cats get along?
No. Blue would eat the cats. She has her own room with a large, secure cage. Between birds, cats and snakes, we have all the predators and prey coexisting to some extent.
Lol…good thing the birds can fly. They’re at the bottom of the food chain there.
I love these, especially the ones with the branches.
Thanks, Shey. Clouds and branches make the moon a little more interesting.
They make it look fantastic
Absolutely stunning pictures of the moon🌚.
Beautiful pictures of the moon.
Blue and Blue Moon… what a pairing! The branches create such intricate designs on the moon.
Cheers to a beautiful moon and cheers to sweet Blue too!
By the way, is that Blue’s tongue I see on the last two moon shots?! 😉
Yes that was her tongue. She was giving me a snakey lick.
Thought so! 😉
Thanks, Marina. Clouds and branches are a nice touch. Blue was happy.
Ethereal pictures of the Moon! 😃 I misinterpreted the title for a “Blue moon” and wondered why it wasn’t blue. And then I learned that Blue was the snake 😅 Blue looks lovely too! 💞
We saw what we thought was a huge harvest moon on Saturday — huge and orange. Didn’t realise it would turn into a blue moon. Didn’t wait up!
One the moon gets above the thick atmosphere and low clouds hanging on the horizon, it turns blue then white in its brightness.
Spectacular pictures 😍😍
I enjoy moon images with tree limbs, cacti, or any vegetation as a silhouette. It makes the moon so much more dreamier then it is.
Have a great week… and to Blue too!
Thanks, Nancy. Blue is enjoying digesting on her hot rock.
Cool shots, Tim.
And now I have seen a blue moon! Thank you, Tim!
You are welcome, Rebecca. But if you have ever seen the second full moon in a single month, then you have seen a blue moon.
And that is why the saying is “once in a blue moon” – I learn something new every day. Thank you.
Yes/ Not a lot of blue moons. and fewer black moons. A black moon is when there is no full moon it February, which means a blue moon in January or March.
Beautiful moons and gorgeous snake.
Thanks, Gigi. Blue is beautiful. We raised her from a pup. She’s 20 years old.
Nice snake! Definitely won’t show Linda.
Oh what a moon .. I should say blue moon and orange moon.. chilling the warm frozen rat! 🤣
Thanks, Cindy. We have rats in the freezer and I have to warm up the frozen rats when I feed Blue.
Oh you are truly making me cringe now Timothy but I remember the live ones we gave ours! ewww lol 🤣
I never feed live anymore. I had a large python that got bit in the mouth by a rat. I had to treat that wound. Mouth wounds are a real pain to treat on a large snake. As you might imagine.
Beautiful photo of Blue
Thanks, Dawn. She is a beautiful snake.
The moon shots are fabulous, Tim!
I like snakes, but I could never feed one!
How old is Blue? How long will he live?
She’s 18 or 19. We got her as a new born in 2002 or 2003. They can live 25 to 30 years in campivity. Given Beaker is 10 years beyond what he is supposed to live, Blue might live another 18 years.
Wow! You take such good care of your pets, no wonder they can have long lives.
It’s also very cool that you have cats and snakes and a bird.
Jeep wouldn’t put up with anything else. She barely puts up with Johnny.
I think a poor mouse is under the sink. Jeep has taken up station there for 3 weeks now.
Last mouse, she waited about 6 months for.
It’s out of my control.
