|Coachwhip, photo by Carol Tornow|
Cloudy skies this morning didn't stop Carol T from snake spotting, but they did stop this normally-too-fast-to-photograph coachwhip, who remained motionless throughout the photo session. Carol and I ran into Marge K and Angie P on the way out of the canyon and told them about our sighting. They later saw this gopher snake waiting for breakfast by a ground-squirrel-sized hole. Thanks to Carol and Angie for sharing the photographs.
