You have joined me at the Canberra Show - the annual agricultural show and fair. This harmless and beautifully patterned snake has had enough of the photo opportunity and wants to slip SilenTly away!

My hat's off to the snake handler. I like to keep my distance from those characters. I'm reading the 'Science of Fear' which explains these fears we humans have and how some people, like politicians and drug companies, manipulate those fears. Interesting stuff.
