 'Oh no, here they come!'


'I'm outa here!'


I wonder what Josephina Ballerina would do with this critter. Hmmm.  Stop in and visit Maureen at Josephina Ballerina. She's a delight!

Gayle said...

More afraid of us than we of them---so THEY say ;)

Susie said...

Tired Teacher said...

You can have him as a neighbor; if he were here, he would be relocating. ;o)

Chatty Crone said...

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Get my meaning?

Cranberry Morning said...

Okay, everyone. He's just a sweet, harmless bull snake. Lol. Funny how much they look like rattlers, though, which I don't think we even have this far north. Thank goodness.

Debbie said...

The Joy of Home with Martha Ellen said...

Oh my goodness, Judy! Snakes are not my favorite, but I know in the scheme of things they have their place--just hopefully not at my place! ♥

Teresa Hennes said...

I like snakes and find thme interesting. Great shots!

Mildred said...

I would TRY to run!!!!!! lol

Terri D said...

S/he is a handsome specimen!! They are usually more afraid of us than we are of them! I'll go visit your friend, Josephina!

Denise said...

Eeeeek!!! Wow, you're brave to get so close for that picture. Since I saw your comment that it's a harmless snake, I feel better. :) Here in N.C., we have copperheads (very poisonous and aggressive), water moccasins (poisonous) and rattlesnakes. I try to avoid them whenever possible. ;>) We also have large black snakes who are beneficial to us because they tend to keep the pest population down.

Great pictures Judy -- enjoy your day!

Hugs,

Denise at Forest Manor

We use to only have garter snakes but just recently a bull snake showed up out at the edge of the yard. I don't know anything about them nor anything about yours. I try to ship the ones I catch to the country.

podso said...

I couldn't tell what it was from the wee photo but certainly figured it out when I clicked into your blog. Oh my, my least favorite creature.

Felicia said...

get the shovel!!!!!!!!! :>)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I have some snakes I've been trying to decide whether to post or not; but yours is prettier! (Of course I mean photos of snakes, but I'm sure you knew that ;>)!

Carla from The River said...

Great photos!! You brave girl. ;-)

Gina said...

Oh dear! I wonder what kind of snake that is? If it isn't poisonous I wouldn't mind holding it. :-)

Hannah said...

Apparently a very rare color form for a Bull Snake! I think I caught a Bull snake at some time in my Herpetology class, It's always interesting to see how they react, some are quite friendly. The garter snakes here mostly try to get away.

Karen S. said...

Yikes! Run little snake run as quick as you can..... ! Far, far away! Hehehehe!

Stephanie said...

Oh my, I have no words... :) Maureen is definitely a delight! Hugs to you!

I like him! I've always been a snake fan. In fact, I joined the Boy Scouts so I could go on camping trips and catch some.

Marie C said...

He's really beautiful! I can't tell what kind he is...but if he's catching mice, he has my vote. Great photos!

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

He's gorgeous! I used to have a little snake many years ago and they fascinate me. Now, spiders... that's a different story :-) Have a great week x

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Yikes!!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Not my favourite critter but I have noticed the harmless ones are as afraid of us as we are of them.
Hope you've had a pleasant weekend.

Donna said...

I'd be loading up a gun... after I quit screaming!
