She was fortunate, Pat; could have been a bad scene. The snake must have been half asleep.

Beautiful snake! Your story reminds me of the time one of our daughters stepped over a rattlesnake. Several of us were standing there, and none of us saw it. She wasn't bitten.

Thank you all for your comments! Blacksnakes are extremely common here so it is no trick to recognize them. The only poisonous snakes we have here are copperheads, which are likewise easily recognized, and moccasins, which stay down near the water; I've never seen a moccasin but I do see copperheads from time to time.

That is one healthy snake!!
Good thing you know your serpents. I would not have guessed non-poisonous. The shape of the head looks triangular.
