Off in the distance, I give myself the "what the heck" ... what is it? Then, for a second, I thought I was looking at a cobra.
It turned out to be a Florida Cottonmouth. From a distance, its wide head, and because it had its head raised into the air, gave the impression of a cobra. I have gotten close to rattlesnakes to take images. This is a species you don't mess with.

A Gray Catbird deserves a special treat now and then, just like people do ...
I sometimes put some berries on top my vanilla ice cream. This Catbird decided to put a dab of vanilla ice cream on top its berry.
