On the snake front, my little Merritt Island / Cape Canaveral excursion on 31 March 2012 was almost a bust. I'd missed a dusky pigmy rattler earlier in the day and nearly missed this southern black racer entirely. I couldn't get decent photographs of the dude, much less get my hands on it. Still, I was happy to have at least gotten these. This snake was *active*!
