Summer Rat Snake

In the swamp this harmless, yet feisty, baby rat snake edges closer to my camera. The straight-sided snake glided through the water with a striped scaly body displaying an interesting display of opposite coloring. It’s back and belly banded in opposites stripes the black or gray race rat snake with its monochrome design, a beauty to behold.

This opposite colored reptile attracted my camera lens, so I guess sometimes opposites do attract.

I never know what I’ll see in the water.
