Corn snake huddled up in a tree

Corn snake huddled up in a tree (Pantherophis guttatus)

On a cooler day, this corn snake was coiled up on a tree about six feet off the ground, trying to catch a little sun to warm up...making it about eye-level with me

Now that's a snake picture to put my old rattler into the shade! Brilliant photo.
Thank you - though corn snakes are certainly safer to get that close to, compared to your rattler! Corn snake bites can hurt, but they're not poisonous!

KITS - this snake was about 5 feet from me, and eye level as I was walking by...he wasn't really too keen on moving, so he just stayed there as still as can be and looked back at me. I had to back up a little to get the shot. Though it was May in Florida, which should be brutally hot, it was only in the upper-70s after a very cloudy and rainy week, so many of the reptiles were out trying to get some sun.
