I picked up one concrete square at a time and laid them down and to my surprise, I found a pretty copperhead hiding behind one of the stepping-stones I was using to hold the doors closed. He didn't strike at me and moved inside the shed. Of course I followed it into the shed to see where it went. I then hurried into the house to get my camera and hoping it was still there, returned to take its pictures and it was nice enough to pose for me. This first picture is full size uncropped and I didn't use the zoom. I just put the camera down close to it, snapped the picture and luckily, it didn't strike at me.
I stepped past it and took a picture from the inside of the shed looking out. He still didn't want to move. Lazy guy, isn't he?
Finally, it uncoiled and slithered back into the shed. I looked all over for it and couldn't find it. It must of somehow got out the back underneath the walls or maybe it is hiding in my lawn tractor's seat. Gee, glad I got all the grass cut yesterday and will not have to get the tractor out for awhile. Now don't any of you get snake bit but have a great day, you hear?
