I know, snakes don't have legs! lol This photo was taken from my view with my Nikon 220 that I'm getting familiar with.
Remember looking up at the sky, wondering about the clouds?
One of my favorite things to do as a child was to get real dizzy, then lay on the grass and look up at cloud formations. Now that I'm all grown up, I imagine this "anaconda went walking!"

Here's the entire poem. I think it's pretty cute!
A Remarkable Adventure
I was at my bedroom table
with a notebook open wide,
when a giant anaconda
started winding up my side,
I was filled with apprehension
and retreated down the stairs,
to be greeted at the bottom
by a dozen grizzly bears.
We tumultuously tussled
till I managed to get free,
then I saw, with trepidation,
there were tigers after me,
I could feel them growing closer,
I was quivering with fear,
then I blundered into quicksand
and began to disappear.
I was rescued by an eagle that descended from the skies
to embrace me with its talons,
to my terror and surprise,
but that raptor lost its purchase
when a blizzard made me sneeze,
and it dropped me in a thicket
where I battered both my knees.
I was suddenly surrounded
by a troop of savage trolls,
who maliciously informed me
they would toast me over coals,
I was lucky to elude them
when they briefly looked away--
that's the reason why my homework
isn't here with me today.
Such a cute poem. If you have sons or grandsons like me, you're always checking their pockets before you do the wash!
Thinking of all my online friends and wishing you a Happy Sunday for Mother's Day, which is each and every day with all the "mothering" that you do!
