Opheodrys aestivus, the Rough green snake;
Lowndes county, Georgia (13 May 2013).
Though certainly not uncommon, I don’t often spot the Rough green snake. They can, when tangled through the varied, lush greens of the American southeast, be somewhat invisible (to me at least) given their slim, bright green coloring. A non-venomous species, Rough green snakes are quite stealthy from my vantage. Another species pretty well adept at hiding in plain sight.
