The other day I went out on the carport to fill the bird feeder and water the hanging plant. Looked down and wrapped around the railing and in front of the door to go to my porch was this:
I decided to get my camera and get a couple pictures. Before I go further I shall say it is a large black snake and they are harmless. My hubby said to grab it in back of it's head and carry it across the road to the woods. Yah, sure. I think it weighs a little more than I could handle.
I then went down the steps to get this picture from below. See him wrapped around the railing.
Later I saw him going down over the porch by way of the post. I hoped he was gone.
But later that day I went out to take the garbage and he was stretched out on the carport at least 3 feet long. Headed for the generator, and where the garbage can is kept along with the bag of recyclable pop cans and other recyclables. I keep a tarp over the generator to protect it from blowing rains. I was afraid he would get under there and settle for winter.
So yesterday while my husbands friend was here I carefully took the tarp off and started the generator to scare him away. So far have not see anything of him again.
At least this wasn't as bad as the rattlesnake that JulieQ's husband almost stepped on. She had pictures of that a few days ago.
Thanks for stopping by. Seems to be a lot of new bloggers stopping lately.
