Baby snake crossing the sidewalk.
Discovered this snake in my wood pile while moving the pile. I stopped moving the pile and left it alone until fall. Haven't seen this snake since then, but there was a skin in the pile in the fall.
Decomposing rough green snake. Green color becomes blue due to diminishing yellow pigments . This guy was most likely casualty of maintenance crew mowers.
Observed crossing the multiuse trail and it appeared to align its body with a stem of grass in an apparent attempt to hide.
