Spring Break 2023: Thamnophis saurita sackenii

Thamnophis saurita sackenii, the Peninsula ribbon snake;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (14 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023

Though this particular night proved to be modest on its snake offerings, I did come across couple of beauties. Featured here is a lovely Peninsula ribbon snake, a non-venomous species closely related to the slightly-more-famous garter snake. Ribbons can be a bit reactive and flighty, so I was grateful this one held its ground while I snagged a few quick shots.
