Slithering hither and yon

Northern Neck Master Naturalist John Narney was in the Menokin woods last week, working on a flora and fauna survey for the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Grant.

He encountered some fauna alright. Of the reptilian persuasion. Luckily he had his camera handy and shared these shots with me.

Eastern Rat snake (formerly called a Black Snake)
“When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful
And I think it’s what I want to be.”
~ Kermit The Frog
This narrow green snake was over two feet long.
