I believe this to be a 6ft black rat snake, although it might be a black racer. It was right before the visitor center at BNWR just laying out on the pavement getting warm. At first I thought it was dead because it didn't move for quite a while. I got out of the car and took some shots from 10 feet back, then got down low in front of him for this top shot, about 4 feet away. Yep he was alive! He was tasting me! Ewww! :) Was pretty cool. They're non venomous. Kinda wish I was brave enough to touch it but ... nah... I'm a chicken.
