Northern Water Snake

A Northern Water Snake (Nerodia sipedon) spotted during a recent photowalk through Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. “The Northern water snake … is a large, nonvenomous, well-known snake in the Colubridae family that is native to North America.” Source Credit: Wikipedia. I’d say this snake has been eating well, as evidenced by one or more bulges along its body. Summertime, and the living is easy! Well, easier than wintertime.
