I love the one where the green snake looks like part of the plant.

Very nice looking kingsnake. Was that coastal?

Always cool to see FL copperheads too. I assume that was in the Blackwater area?

That's one of my favorite things about green snakes. They blend in so well that we probably walk right past most of them without seeing them.

The Kingsnake, corn, green, and copperhead were all in the Blackwater area on the same day.

Great photos once again!

Love the Rough Green and copperhead pics. Being close to my heart... generally metaphorically.

For our most recent encounter:
Heidi and I came across a pair of Western Gray-necked Garters in south Brewster County, TX.

Kelly, the photo behind your title is so sharp. The new look is great.

All the best..

Thanks Matt! I'd love to see a photo of those garters. I've only seen a couple of the western types. Of course I have good memories of all the greens and a couple copperheads from TX. Glad to see from your blog that you're finding all sorts of neat things.

I should've typed "Western BLACK-necked Garter" that is (Thamnophis cyrtopsis cyrtopsis).

I couldn't get stellar photos, but one is up here:

Heidi may have some better ones. There were a pair in a concrete holding tank/pond.
A beautiful animal that our pics won't do justice.
