Not too exotic but probably the longest racer snake I've ever seen next to a tee box at Seth Burton Memorial Park in Fairmont, WV.

Have a nesting pair of barred owls at my backyard course and I finally got a decent picture of one.

I recognize Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, but I can't recall an episode with a gila monster.

That's a beauty! It's actually a Rat Snake, though. Racers are skinnier and have a rounder crossection, have more narrow, pointed heads, and lack any pattern (at least in in your part of the country).

I apologize if you don't care about any of this. I'm a bit of a snake geek. That said, if you do care, here are some helpful websites for comparison.

^ This. We have seen several Eastern (Black) Rat Snakes lately. One at an outdoor wedding, which caused a bit of commotion.

Not sure if the large number of sightings is coincidence, or if Eastern Rat Snakes are particularly abundant this year.

The turtle I photographed on the previous page of this thread was out there again today! This time Madison Walker grabbed a photo of it. If any of you are Madison Walker fans and follow her on media, the big turtle photo from this morning is the same one.

I hope it's out there tomorrow and Sunday, too. It's a neat bit of continuity.

Hmmm. Doesn't look well-enough protected from an incoming disc, though the effort is admirable.

Good info and thanks for the correction, I'm decent on most critters but not that great when it comes to Mr No-Shoulders.
