I flipped over a log in the timber and found two of these darling little ring-necked snakes (Diadophis punctatus). I moved nice and slow, and they sat still at let me take pictures.
That's a cute lil' snake! I'd be a bit too scared to get so close to take a good picture.
I love these little guys... they never get much bigger than a pencil. They don't even try to bite, either!
Ooh, it's so pretty! Again, I love their markings. How big was this one?
