After a kayak ride I always flip it over so that if it rains, it doesn't accumulate inside and then I have to drain it. This afternoon I flipped it right side up for my afternoon ride and this little guy was hiding from the sun under it. I dashed up to the house to grab my camera and some worms to feed it. By the time I got back down, he had slithered under the kayak. I saw his head poking out and I tossed a couple of worms his way - 3 to be exact. And he got them all. I stuck around to watch as I find it fascinating to watch. (you can see one of the worms in the bottom right hand corner to the left of the white rock - he has his eye on it already). I decided not to bother him anymore and left him alone.
He was gone by this evening so I launched the kayak and followed Rick and Melina around the lake on their evening fishing excursion - Melina got a pickerel - all by herself.
No sign of the little snake.
