    Getting to be that time of the year. I didn't see him till it was around the fig trees. Of course every animal had to come check it out. [​IMG] Thank goodness the dogs were inside at the time.
    It's about a 3 to 4 ft. long water moccasin, they are very beautiful snakes.
    I got all of my chickens to the other side of the yard,with some treats..... my polish roo had to come check it out. [​IMG]

    I respect your calmness about it. I would have found it fascinating but I would have been too afraid to get near it. I like snakes well enough, but preffer them from a distance. Thank you for the picture, it was neat to see.
