Not ten minutes there I see this head poking out of a pile of weeds behind the shed. This subspecies is a lot more nippy and bad tempered than the one in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Also, my aunt and uncle said they never saw this one before. This is the same farm where I found this last year:
