Snakes Alive

Permalink 05:10:30 pm, Categories: Native species  

(Post by Brendan) I finally saw my first live snake in Bahrain last week after 5 years. Abdulla identified it as a rat snake and tells me the Arab name translates as 'swift snake' as it moves so fast. BK

Had the big lens on but while out looking for birds these beauties came into view - couldn't resist being an avid clickologist. Not the best photos a 500mm is hardly a macro and these were a bugger to focus on. However nice to see and record til I can get some decent shots.

This moth appeared on the outside panel of my back door. Not sure what species is but was struck by its very distinctive markings
My thanks to David Fuller who has since identified this as Crimson Speckled (Utetheisa pulchella)

Better known as the Daub here this one was one of the largest I have seen for years - it must have been close to two feet long. lovely beasts and harmless vegetarians
