Finally came across a snake. Generally they're not hard to find, but for some reason this year, the snakes have been somewhat scarce around my place, makes the Mrs happy.
I couldn't get very close to him and snap a real close macro. He was somewhat agitated, and would not hold still. I had to keep going around the tree to head him off and stop him, so anyhow this is what I finally wound up with.
