Nerodia sipedon, 13 July 2019

Nerodia sipedon, the Northern watersnake;
Rutherford county, North Carolina (13 July 2019).

Hopping north of Florida, you’ll start to find yourself in the domain of the Northern watersnake, Nerodia sipedon. I’ve encountered this species in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Oklahoma, but it was this encounter in North Carolina that provided the best opportunity for some macro shots. If I had more budget and free time, I’d love to trek north just to spend a few months looking for Northern watersnakes.
