Another Snake on the Trail

Okay, one more post...

I got out on a real trail today for the first time in ages and it felt amazing! My mood lifted instantly especially when my friend Linda spotted a huge rat snake right at the trail head. I wrangled it of course...I can't resist catching snakes...and Linda got some great snaps of the event. Eventually it calmed down and I let it go about it's business. Rat snakes are not poisonous but they can deliver a nasty bite that could get infected, so I was just as cautious with it as I was with the copperhead.

Hopefully Linda will get those pics to me in the near future so you can see Ginny "Irwin" in action. For the record, I won't be going near any sting rays!
