Coluber constrictor priapus, 22 July 2016

Coluber constrictor priapus, the Southern black racer;
Volusia county, Florida (22 July 2016).

Southern black racers make for great photos if you can get them to pause and peer back at your for a few seconds. This is truly an incredibly rowdy and active species. They sport sharp visual acuity and can indeed race their away across your lawn at the first sight of potential danger. Admittedly, it’s getting harder to catch up to racers as I get older!
