Whole Lotta Slithering Going On!

eastern ribbon snake

Right now in northern NJ, USA, baby snakes are plentiful.  Most of our slitherers give birth late summer or early fall.  Here we have an eastern ribbon snake and a couple of northern water snakes.  These shots were taken within the last couple weeks.  I’ve seen many more lately,  but they’re just too quick for me to snap!

  1. Oh, dear Helen, I’m pining for reptiles. I’m scared of them.
    You are very brave if you’ve photographed. Congratulations.
    The pictures are very beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a wonderful day. Big hugs, Stefania! 🙂

  2. Oh, for a swamp! We’re lucky to find an earthworm here! Your snakes make excellent subject matter for photographs, and you’ve used them well.

  3. Wonderful photographs – you managed a couple of really good ones. But oh man, they scare the heck out of me – you are a brave one!

  4. Gracious goodness ! You are having quite exciting life.
    Live in this country half of my life, I saw a snake only once !
