Snake

Went in a little bit ago to toss some laundry in. As I was reaching across the dryer to turn it on, I relized that there was a snake heading down, with his head propped on the basket of clean clothes on top of the dryer!

Ran up to get the camera, and (s)he was already high-tailing(?) it out, but got a couple of shots anyway. Looks like a harmless Black Rat Snake, I think.

And a closeup on the head. Lightened to show the body coloring better.
