This gray rat snake was around our garage door and eventually moved on down toward the woods and the swamp, which I think was a good call on its part as we have a good collection of hawks and owls in our neighborhood.
It was a little over three feet long with pretty markings and, once it hit the weedy area, it had amazing camouflage. It just disappeared.
