This black rat snake is just out of hibernation. I only had my macro lens and wasn’t brave enough to get closer even though it isn’t poisonous. It was already only inches away.
This is a post in support of @kiwifur project in support of s close family friend battling ALS which has the hashtag #fishforgary since he used to love fishing. I realize this isn’t a trout but the plant is named trout lily because the speckled leaves look like trout.
