Northern Water Snake - OIM Original

I spotted this Northern Water Snake as it swam gracefully across the open water to shore. Non-venomous, these harmless snakes are often mistaken for copperheads. The camouflage markings on this snake are beautiful to see as it hunts for its next meal along the waters edge.
