Scenes from the commute

A brown snake makes his way along the Black Creek Greenway in Cary, NC:

Are you ready for your close-up Mr. Brown Snake?

Brown snakes seem to be extremely common in North Carolina -- I regularly find them around the house in the spring and summer. This particular brown snake had a very reddish color whereas the brown snakes I typically see are a bit more grayish in color.

Love that snake shot, and the narrative.
