Black Racer

Monday's wander wasn't just about treefrogs, although I do have more pictures of them. We also saw other critters. One was this black racer at the base of a beech tree. He was rooting around in the leaves, obviously in pursuit of some tasty prey.

He was so intent on what he was doing that he didn't notice us until we got quite close. We didn't disturb him too much. As soon as we stepped away he went back to his business.

Pure grace when they move, and I love their habit of sticking their head up to look around.

They are impressive when they put it in overdrive. And those big eyes!
