Corn Snake

I'm always looking in trees for birds but this time I got surprised.  This corn snake, also known as a red rat snake, was relaxing on a low limb in a red oak tree on my property.  These snakes spend a lot of time in trees raiding birds nests.  This is the first and only time I've seen one on my property although they are quite common in the nearby Ocala National Forest.
