Three Resting Racers



Posted by Picasa
Curiously, the only snakes we saw Sunday were Northern Black Racers and all of them were coiled up by the trail we were walking. (I saw one other snake that I'm fairly certain was a racer, but it was on the move and I didn't get a positive ID.)

sweet bay,
Racers are very pretty snakes. They have nice big eyes.

jason,
We were surprised to find them all coiled. Usually racers are on the move. All of these just seemed to be snoozing in sun dapples.
