I was leading a birding field trip to the Nisqually NWR when we saw this small snake crawling across the trail. Suddenly the snake lunged forward and grabbed a frog in the grass at the edge of the trail. We watched it crawl into the grass with its prey. You can see one leg of the frog hanging onto the neck of the snake. We were just fortunate to be in the right place at the right time.
