Twin bed spring frame, sections of corrugated sheet metal, and a grinding wheel were about all I could make out so far in the junk pile. I was using a chain to drag piece by piece to a junk pile in front of the barn. Eventually, I'll load up all this rusted junk and take it to the dump. Of course, I'll need a flatbed trailer and I'll need to figure out where the dump IS but...all in due time.
I was about 20 minutes into cleaning out this pile of junk when I met Mr Snake. I was on the tractor and perched nearly dead center on top of the shrinking pile, amidst the tall grass when I saw him come slithering out, heading in my direction. I quickly shifted from reverse to forward and jumped out of there so I could get my eyes on him.
After circling around the pile several times, I found him and took a (admittingly poor) picture:
|He appeared green-ish in color with a lighter colored belly|
|You're looking at the belly side|
I'd say he had a solid seafoam green-ish body with a much lighter underbelly. No obvious markings. Anybody able to identify the genus and/or species? Is it the Rough Green Snake?
