Caption: Imagine opening your garage walk door and finding THIS on your doorstep, as I did this morning! Harmless blacksnake, but it did give me a start -- and a photo op.

Well, sorta, Araceli, but it was mostly running for the camera. Every time I DON'T take it outside with me, seems like I miss something I could 'a' shot. At least he waited for me to return instead of disappearing. Thanks for commenting!

It's a question of who will scare whom, Charlotte! This guy outweighs the rooster; I should know because I flung him over the fence. He's about 4' long and as thick as my wrist. Thanks for taking a look and commenting!

That guy will definitely get your eggs but maybe the rooster will scare it off.

I'm sure it does, Dave; the soil has lots of burrows from rats and moles that it can get into, plus they like places like hollow logs, under rocks and debris, etc. There's never any shortage of blacksnakes around here. Thanks for commenting!

LOL Dianne! I saw this fellow last week while I was out mowing, but he didn't stay put long enough for me to get my camera. Today he did. Got several more shots coming up in a bit.

I hope he leaves our chickens alone; blacksnakes like eggs. Fortunately for me, the snake is so fat I don't think he can get through or under the poultry netting... I hope!

LOL Peter! Not exactly, but I do have enough junk on my patio under the deck that snakes can find hiding places there. Need to get a shed to store all that stuff out of sight.
