Milk Snake

Sometimes farm life includes encounters with wildlife.   Twice in the past couple weeks, we have had such experiences with a "Milk Snake".   This one is not particularly large, as one can tell in comparison to the rather healthy May crab grass, but it was surprisingly easy to agitate.

Now I'm not a huge snake fan, but I must admit, this one is quite....   well...   pretty.   And knowing that it lives off small rodents, one has to agree it must be a good thing to have around in the fields and woods.

Assuming it manages to avoid capture by a hawk or other predator, maybe we'll see this fellow again one day...
