It better be dead

Evening running on Highway 34 in Terrell can be an adventure sometimes.  Last night Brian was up ahead of me and I saw him stop and turn around.  About that time I came up to this.  Thankfully, it was dead.  I think I still jumped and almost ran out into the highway.  What do you do when you pass a dead snake, you go home and get the camera.

The sidewalk is in the upper left of this shot.  It had to be at least 6' long.

LOL about the title! I used to feel that way about snakes too. We have a place in our neighborhood that should have a sign that says, "Snake Crossing" because I always see dead ones there. Once I saw a live one and I backed up and ran over it with the car. It was horrible. The pressure spewed it's guts all over the road and he didn't even die. I cried and cried. I don't even think he was poisonous. It was terrible. I promised to never do that again, unless one was threatening me. - If you go to a zoo where you can see them close-up you will see that the non-poisonous snakes have sweet round pupils, almost like cartoon characters, but the venomous snakes have those scary, elliptical pupils, except for the coral snake.

You "went home" to get the camera? That is the action of a dedicated photographer!!
