I stumbled upon this Southern Black Racer while peacefully walking a nature trail.

It was about 3 feet long and quite thick for a Black Racer.

I patiently spent time watching it while staying a healthy distance away to be safe. They are very fast - hence the name "racer".

It's scales were absolutely beautiful.

My patience paid off as it started to yawn - I excitedly snapped as many pictures as I could!

Watch where you walk, great advice. Wow you captured fantastic photography here.

Is this snake venomous to humans?

By the thick underbrush area you appear to be walking in most probably out hunting.

Well I wouldn't want to get that close to anything like that you're a braver person than I.

Found your post via one of this weeks @pifc nominations
