Opened the hood of my John Deer tractor to jump off my riding mower and there he/she was about a foot away from my face. Somewhat sheepishly I'll admit I yelled (maybe screamed) and jumped around a bit. The photo quality is kind of bad. For some reason I was having trouble holding the phone steady. I'm not crazy about snakes but prefer them to mice. We seem to have a lot of black and garter snakes around the place. It may explain why we don't have the copperheads and rattlesnakes that our neighbors complain about.
