Gray Day, Gray Concrete, Gray Rat Snake

B opened the front door one gray evening and quickly closed it while saying, “Quick, get your camera!” While I was grabbing the camera, I said, “What am I going to see?”

Here is the answer.

A small gray rat snake with a nice “dotted line” pattern.


I got only this one shot before it was gone behind some flower pots. We decided, even with it so close to the front door, just to leave it alone. Stay alert, froggies!

That is a beautiful snake. I saw a small brown snake in my roses yesterday, but I don't know what kind it was. I do know that it wasn't a copperhead. We have those here because we're so close to the woods.
