Yesterday I saw something a little suspicious in the yard. Was it a stealthy submarine periscope? Nope, it was a Black Snake sneakily heading my way.Every now and then he would pop up to make sure he was heading in the right direction... ...and looked around to make sure there were no dogs in the area. I was taking pictures from my kitchen window, which was a nice distance away.When I went outside he knew I was there and would hide...but kept and eagle-eye on me. No weeding the garden today! I'm back inside now taking pictures through the widow AND porch railing.He's eyeing the house now! Looking both ways before crossing! "Wait a minute...should I go?" "Yep!"
I think he spent the rest of his day under the porch...I hope my "tiny" guest from the other day stays on his webbed "toes", or he may be lunch!
What I understand is that Black Snakes are very beneficial so he is welcome to stick around.
