I just got back from a week in Charlotte, NC. I'm generally pretty terrified of snakes and after reading about the copperheads that occasionally make an appearance I spent most of the time walking very slowly with my head down. Fortunately I did not see any copperheads, but I did see a fat black snake and a thin neon green snake at Renny. The black snake was slowly crossing the path 20 feet from me while I was waiting for the rain to pass. The green snake was passing from one bush to another a foot away from my hand as I searched for my disc on 18. I was at my car 7 seconds later and my beloved Drone stayed behind somewhere.
I came across this crayfish on #5 fairway at Hornet's Nest a few days later.
Much more interesting than anything I have come across in Western, NY. I did see some huge Salmon swimming upstream by Lake Ontario once, and a baby deer almost bumped into me when he was coming out of a small strip of trees across #3 fairway at Shore Winds White. Probably startled me more than him.
