Green Snake – Dolly Sods Wilderness area

Went to the Dolly Sods nature area in West Virginia this week. The sun came out making a cool and windy day a sunny cool and windy day. There were some birds out and about as well as this Green Snake. The snake was gathering some warm sunshine while stretched out in a Mountain Laurel bush. Not going to be many more days for this guy to take advantage of.
