DH called me out to the garden (I was in the barn hanging a curtain, but more about that later). We saw a sight we've never seen before. Petunia (the snake) at work! She had captured a large slug and was pulling it through the herb bed. Well, I did always assume they were eating slugs.
I didn't want to scare her from her task, so I tried to zoom in without getting too close or taking time to see if it was focused.
In the middle of the photo you will see the spotted slug and the striped Petunia. The slug is bigger around than Petunia. She has it in her mouth about in the middle of the slug.
Below, even a worse photo, but looks for the spotted slug and the striped Petunia.
Later, I checked this bed again and heard dry leaves rustling. Two smaller Petunias where scouting around. I take it that the big slug hunter wouldn't share and sent them off to find their own slugs. Who am I to complain.
Ahhh.... I just cannot get enough of the echinacea color this year (& the drunk bees).
