Well, I thought I had made my post for the day, and went out on the porch to enjoy the last of the day. I heard the Blue Jays squawking, which sometimes indicates that a hawk is nearby, so I went out on the driveway to look. And there was a snake stretched out across the drive. We picked him up to get some pictures (though I would have liked to photograph him on the drive!).

We're still trying to identify the snake. He had a damaged chin and one eye was foggy (maybe he's getting ready to molt?) These are the best pictures:

After we had photographed the poor guy about 20 times, we let him go back in the woods near the house.
