Copper Horse Vineyard - Arizona

If it was a snake it would have bitten me…

Snake in the Vineyard in English:

I was working on my hands and knees pulling grass at the base of the wine when I encountered a 5″ snake skin.

You know the saying “If it was a snake it would have bitten me”, and it was a snake, but just its skin, luckily.

Based on the tail, straight and narrow, it was not a rattlesnake, but most likely a Glossy Snake.

Then I tried to grab a moving grape, just to realized it was a Funnel Web Spider (venimous) running for her life.

Never a dull moment at Copper Horse Vineyard.

Serpent au vignoble en Français:

Je travaillais à quattre pattes à arracher des mauvaises herbes aux pieds des vignes quand j’ai rencontré une peau de serpent de 1m50.

Vous connaissez le proverbe “Si c’était un serpent, il m’aurait mordu”, et c’était un serpent, mais juste sa peau, heureusement.

En regardant la queue, droite et pointue, ce n’était pas un serpent à sonnettes, mais plus probablement un serpent brillant (Glossy snake).

Puis j’ai éssayé d’attrapper un grain de raisin qui bougeait, pour m’appercevoir qu’en fait, c’était juste une araignée à toile-entonnoir (venimeuse) qui courrait pour sa vie.

On ne s’ennuie jamais à CHV.
