Holiday/Monthly challenge: a red and a rescue

It’s Spain’s Constitution Day, and it seems appropriate to celebrate their holiday while we’re over here. When in Spain, do as the Spaniards do.

Actually, we didn’t see anything very holidayish here in Mojácar on our day ride to El Marchal, but we did have an awesome ride.  The featured photo is of a ladder snake that I rescued from conversion to snake grease.  He was coiled up torpid in the middle of the road and I coaxed him off with a foot-long stick for his own good. He didn’t show much appreciation though.

Earlier on the ride we came across this brilliant castor bean plant.  It looks red enough for this month’s challenge to me, so I’m submitting the post for both challenges.


This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    It looks like the unappreciative serpent has a rather red mouth to me . . . . . . .

    Amazing snake picture! I wouldn’t be so sure he’s not poisonous – he looks pretty dangerous to me.

    You are braver than me. Turtles, yes, I will rescue and take a chance of being peed on. Snakes, and a chance of being bitten, nope!
