Here is another of my snake collection…..
I have always been fascinated by snakes. So far, I have seen Red Rat Snakes, Black Rat Snakes, Black Racers, Blue Indigos (I think), Coral Snakes, a Pigmy Rattler and the Yellow Rat Snake. I’ve managed to photograph some of them, but not all.
These have all been in my yard at one time or another. I even saw a beautiful blue-ish green snake that was about a ft and a half long and very thick. I’ve never seen it again and haven't been able to find a picture of anything like it.
It didn’t seem concerned by my camera. Maybe it was sluggish because it was digesting a meal. Hopefully it was a rat or one of the gopher like critters digging up my lawn, and not a bird or baby rabbit.
It finally moved off the birdbath and into a bush.
My dog went out the doggie door and scared the squirrel away. I was interested in seeing what the squirrel would do. It had already traveled at least 5’ on the railing to get this close.
I may have a pair….or more?
My washer and dryer are on the back porch with a railing similar to this one. I was sorting clothes into the washer and a Yellow Rat Snake fell out of the rafters and bounced from my shoulder to the railing. I picked it up by the tail and dropped it to the ground. I now check overhead whenever I’m out there. They are very good climbers and are most likely after the Anoles that spend time up there.
