After we saw the black kingsnake, we headed to the creek to look for water snakes. I found one but couldn’t see it’s head. Jimmy got down in the creek and found the head and managed to get this shot of it. This is the same snake I got a pic of the other day, and I noticed it was different than the usual water snakes I see. I looked it up and turns out it’s a queen snake!

How cool is that? We got a kingsnake and queen snake on the same day!

According to the Outdoor Alabama website, the queen snake is of a moderate conservation concern. All of the other animals I’ve photographed have been low on the conservation list.
