I guess St. Patrick must have missed a few. This one was sunning himself next to our driveway.this afternoon. Mac said he's a Black Racer and was about 4 1/2 feet long. You know I didn't take the picture. I'm not particularly afraid of snakes, but then again, they're not on my list of animals I'd like to hang out with either.
After seeing this one Mac saw another snake swimming in the lagoon, he studied it with binoculars and decided that it wasn't a moccasin or a cottonmouth so he didn't shoot it. He thinks it was a Great Northern Water Snake.
Now snakes on the land are one thing and those in the water another. I HATE WATER SNAKES! There's just something evil looking about them.
So if you happen to see St. Patrick tell him I have a job for him.
