Northern Redbelly Snake

Flora and Fauna Friday: Northern Redbelly Snake

A somewhat different Flora and Fauna Friday post from me this week. A simple record shot of a snake I found sunning itself on a gravel road on a walk last Saturday afternoon.

This is a Northern Redbelly Snake (Storeria occipitomaculata occipitomaculata), a nonvenomous species found in parts of Eastern North America.

This individual is about two thirds grown. Not much bigger than a pencil it got quite belligerent when I tried to get it to move off the road to stop it getting run over. Eventually it got the message and moved off the road. Two vehicles had a go around me while I was trying to get it off the road.

Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

2021: Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

Lights along the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently. The streaks of light along the far shoreline are from a succession of fishing boats heading out to compete in an end of summer fishing derby.

It was actually much darker than it appears to be by the photo, I was guessing the framing in the dark.

An early sign of autumn photographed on a walk last Saturday.

In truth not the first sign, some leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario started changing colour weeks ago.
