This may be the last post on water snakes. For a while at least

Nerodia sipedon, (Northern water snake). Wool felt backing, wool tapestry yarn, and cotton mono canvas. about 3 ft by 4 inches. So pretty dang big.

Bike good….

Bike good…..

June-lotsa vacations. Hard to post with vacations going on. First there was beachage, then there was bicycling. Turns out that you can bike all the way from Pittsburg to Washington DC on dedicated bike trails. The wildlife is spectacular, in the common sort of way. Innumerable basking turtles, barred owls, pileated woodpeckers, deer, fox squirrels, grey squirrels, eastern newts, black rat snakes, a whole mess of perch, catfish, possibly some otter tracks, muskrats, rabbits and even caught a baby snapping turtle as it crossed the road. So, if you are in the area, and are of a woodsy nature, and have a bike, you should go do it. If you are not, then you should go to the area, develop your woodsy nature, get a bike, and go do it.

In the meantime, here is a nerodia hide finished at the beginning of the year, made to look just like a snake hide that one would nail to the wall, if you were the type of person to nail snake skins to the wall.

That is the end of the water snakes for now.
