There sure are a lot of snakes this year and I want them in my garden eating bugs. You can't tell from my crummy camera, but, that top snake was black with a bright fire engine red stripe down the length of it's body. It was around two foot long. Beautiful coloring. It was friendly..and curious. We were playing cat and mouse with each other. I'd hunker down and get real still and he'd slip under the fence and come close. He knew I was there and he was curious, he was watching me just like I was him. He'd come over, right to my foot, and check me out, then turn around and slide back under the fence. No aggression at all, just curiosity. He must have done that 4 times. It was cute. Then an ordinary snake (that one on the bottom) came up from behind and hit my foot. I was wearing flip flops and it freaked me out. LOL! I didn't see him and he sure didn't see me until I jumped around like a maniac. I scared them both and they ran away. They'll be back. I like snakes a lot, I could watch them all day.
