Notes

Well, it wasn't the first time, and it won't be the last, but the racer out-raced me again. Heh. His young adult racer was hunting Cuban brown anoles in my backyard. I had it within reach by the outer wall when the racer actually bolted under and past me. It was a bit humiliating. I was ready for it to go left or right, but I foolishly didn't think about it going under me. On the whole, I'm decent at catching racers, but, you know... They are wicked fast and extremely alert snakes! So it goes.
