Our Northern Water Snake is back

Lynn just got a phone camera shot of what appears to be a Northern Water Snake, Nerodia sipedon sipedon, in the mulch near our house in the front yard.

We like that the snakes eat mice and other vermin, but we also like that they live in the creek and not with us. Hopefully this snake goes back to its earlier home. This is not the first time a snake this large has ventured into our garden.

On Sunday we saw two more snakes sunning themselves by the creek. I scared them when I walked over. I guess this is going to be a snakey kind of year.
