Hilda, I saw the tail before it slithered below deck - left hand corner as you enter
I obviously stayed very farrrr away from that corner :redface:

I love the colours of the brush type flowers Nkulu. :clap:
If our car is the only one, I think we may do a lot of stomping before we get to the hide in the hope that will make any slithery creatures disappear.

I always find the colours and patterns in the WFD's plumage so beautiful. Thanks for sharing this lovely photo Jan. :clap: :clap:
