What a neat looking snake this one is, very slender and with a b/w striped body - quite a dapper lad, isn't he.

A super picture you've taken of him Stanley - many thanks laddie.
 
You are indeed a very efficient wildlife photographer. Do you put away your camera sometimes? :eek!::t:
Excellently spotted and captured snake.

I wonder, is this a smaller subspecies than the ones in Wisconsin? I have seen them there and they looked big!
