Hee hee. That’s the kind of pattern that always makes me do a double and triple take before I say, Oh hi nice rodent-eater!
In my actual yard the large snakes are black and don’t startle me that way. Unless I see one of the really long ones who startle me just by instinct, but I love them. The copperheads are on back in my woods, so patterns do take me a second because it could always be a copperhead here.
