This young moccasin was sunning in the middle of a road near Lake Jackson on the north side of Tallahassee this Sunday afternoon. It is okay with us that we do not live anywhere near Lake Jackson. We have enough moccasins of our own!
If we zoom way in, (below) you can just see the yellow tip of the tail that is characteristic of young moccasins. This is the first time I have ever seen it.
Here you can see the broad stripe down its cheek that is a sure sign of a moccasin.
In the shot below, you can see that triangular head.
As snakes go, it was a purty snake.
When we returned minutes later, there was no sign of the snake.
