Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, 15 March 2023

Nerodia fasciata pictiventris, the Florida banded watersnake;
Volusia county, Florida (08 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

Less than a week before my 2023 Spring Break trip to South Florida, I came upon two Florida banded watersnakes in the Tiger Bay State Forest area just west of Ormond Beach. It was a fairly cool and overcast day, and I only had my iPhone with me… so the pictures aren’t too great. Still, the encounter was the real treat, and I took it as a good omen of the trip to follow. Pictured here is the larger of the two bandeds from this spot. Next up? Lots of wildlife and landscape glory from Spring Break 2023!
