Common Ribbon Snake

We discovered this snake next to our deck this afternoon.  We scared it once and it slipped into a hole in the mulch to hide under the deck.  It needed to be in the sun for warmth, it's a rather cool day, so when we checked again it was out in the sun.

It took a search of Maryland snakes to discover what it was.  It likes wetlands and bogs so maybe it's making its home here because of our pond.  Hmm. I wonder how many gold fish it will eat?
