As long as the photo opportunities are there, I guess I’ll continue to research snakes. Mind you, I don’t want to be surprised by one, but if I see it first, that’s where the lens will be. I believe this one is a corn snake, unless someone tells me different. There was a pair gliding throughout the mud flats in the lake, and note that forked tongue in the 5th images! Never saw one live before; pretty creepy!
