Copper Top

Copperhead, Agkistrodon contortrix. This is another of those elliptical pupil guys - venomous.

Venomous. That works for me. I'm wondering how many of these beauties you're likely to see in a year.

cathy,
If I seek them out I can see a fair number in a year's time. Usually though, I see copperheads quite infrequently here. When I lived in the piedmont section of NC I saw them much more frequently. Such a beautiful snake -- to admire from a distance, of course ;)

I see that the swamp is alive with snakes these days. They're very pretty ... in pictures.

Kinda looks like a corn snake to me. Another reason not to get close enough to see their eyes!! ;-)

Hope you're just busy doing the Spring-thing. Sending a wave from bird-festooned Ohio.
