Snakes in the cellar

Well, we knew moving to the country meant more wildlife, but we certainly didn't expect to have it in our cellar. Here's the first cellar snake of '06, a ring-necked snake, one of over a dozen non-poisonous snakes indigenous to New York. It's still a baby, but a snake's a snake! Lucky (the cat) brought it upstairs to the kitchen so we could all get a better look. After the photo shoot, we let it go in the rock wall. It was about the same size as the ring-necked snake from last year, but much smaller than the milk snake that made it up to the dining room the first year...
