Driving back from the farm with my brother, in Forbes, country New South Wales the other day, my brother exclaimed “What was that?”. He put the car in to reverse, driving back through the dust from the gravel road. Then he pointed to what was on the barb wire fence. I needed a second look, but there, just about 5 paces away, was a 6 foot long brown snake. So I got out of the car, grabbed my new camera, and took all the photos I could. I didn’t want to get too close, those things are deadly.
