While watering the garden this bird (I think a Jackie Hangman!) attacked a baby snake. A war broke out with the bird dancing around and avoiding the snake trying to retaliate. The snake then curled into a ball and the bird took its opportunity to carry it away. The bird stopped on the his way for two seconds for a decent photo shoot.
