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!
