Storks and Snakes

The high water in the river and marsh attracted a White Stork to the little hay field near our house. With about 5 cm of water on it, it is now a natural habitat for frogs. Tanya refers to the bird as a Tsaplya. I was fortunate enough to get a few pictures.

The high water has disrupted other habitat. The local pharmacist was telling Tanya that her folks have a house by the river/marsh. The other day her father got up and saw, curled up by his wife in the bed and both sound asleep, a snake from the marsh. He took the snake back to the marsh only to have it return and curl up under the refrigerator. All it wanted was a warm place to sleep.
