Double black

A few Yellow-tail Black Cockatoos attracted my attention as they moved around some trees in the front paddock and I took a distant shot of one sitting in a Casuarina.

 I was going to try and get a bit closer but as I was about to step off the driveway onto the grass  a glance down stopped me in mid-stride.  I would have almost stepped on top of a Red-bellied Black Snake that was trying to get some warmth on a cloudy cool day. The cockatoo took off before I could make a detour and the snake was quite happy just to stay where it was so a photo and I left it to continue getting what ever warmth was to be had.
