Kingsnake in the Pond

Coming down to the watering hole.

With the AAUW Garden Tour coming up in three days (yikes!) and so much still to do, and of course working in the 80+ degree heat this week, I haven’t been doing much else.  However the heat did bring out our annual visitor to the upper pond.

More than a drink... he's going in!

He (or she) visits a couple of times a year, and seems to enjoy the new shape of the pond with its long shallow end.

Swimming the channel.

I wish he’d go after the bullfrog!

Beautiful bands. Siblings can be striped or banded.

Kingsnakes are mild snakes that will eat other snakes, including rattlers.  I’m glad to see him!
