Not a great photo but to take from a ledge hanging over the creek as this long tailed gentleman sailed by with his forked tongue out front.

Good ‘nuff to get close on ID; it’s either a fox snake or a Lindheimer’s rat snake - both of the rat snake family - well named as a group of snakes to be welcomed wherever found. That family also includes the s3veral species called “chicken snakes”, but none get big enough to swallow a chicken; now chicks and eggs? That’s another story!

Don't be coy, Frank. You posted the most troubling snake image I've ever seen on a photo forum. :)

I know those fellows, we have plenty of them at the country house, but I wasn't sure this was one of them. I didn't know they enjoyed swimming. This fellow's swimming prowess made me suspect he was some kind of water snake.

Only cause I knew it was pre-occupied with something other than me........ Too many rattle snakes, too close, too many times.

I was happy he was in the water where I could get kinda close without worrying about whether I'd ID'd him correctly.

yuk - never get used to being surprised by one of these - they are heart stoppers, innocent or not!
