One of those times when you really need to be watching where you are walking.
Out along the South Platte River this past Sunday, I am walking along the river’s edge, watching for wildlife at eye level and above when something closer to the ground appears. As I put my foot down, something out of the corner of my eye gets my attention and looking down I see this handsome bullsnake six inches from my foot.
I was a bit startled but looking at its eyes, I was reassured that it wasn’t its far more dangerous cousin, the rattlesnake. It was quite patient with me as I moved around, getting pics of it from its spot in the grass.
It was a pretty big one, I am guessing it would have been about four feet long stretched out. Perhaps I need to pay a bit more attention to where I step. 😉
