Problems? Your computer may refuse to show anything other than an empty box. If so, and you are using Windows 7 as the webmaster does, fixing the problem is most simple. Print the image you will come to here & follow the few instructions. In other browsers I presume that you would follow the same approach i.e. get to the 'Java' program on your computer & fix the security level.

Of course you do need to install 'Java' to be able to see it. Easily done! It installs quickly & it is free. Just click on 'Free Java Download' here.

The image is, I learn, of a gopher snake & comes to us courtesy of photographer Shirley Curtis. It appears on the Animal Photo Archive where Shirley has permitted a very large number of her images to be displayed.

In Shirley's words 'After I took his photo, I picked him up & put him in a bucket to transport to the desert outside my house. My, that snake was angry! I carried the bucket on the end of a hoe as he was making a racket & trying to bite me.' Shirley, we thank you, even if the snake didn't!
