I spotted another snake this morning on our gravel front walkway.
I stood inside the vestibule to take these photos.
It's not the same one as the other day.
I think it's a Copperhead - a poisonous snake here in Maryland.
You decide. Here's a photo from the MD Dept of Natural Resources.
Or is it a corn snake?
Don't think so when I compare the markings.
Whatever it is I hope it goes away.
[post script: as of Friday the snake was still there. It found a hole in our rock wall to hang out in.]
