July 28 8:15pm Ariel, my Rottweiler, and I were returning from taking sunset photos at Cattail Pond Trail hi tower.
We were on Cattail Pond Trail when this baby copperhead started crossing the trail. We stopped and waited for it to pass ... the copperhead was not in a hurry... and I remembered I had a camera. When I zoomed in on it --- the flash went off and that baby copperhead was no where to be seen.
The photo is deceiving. The snake was ~12" to 18" long and maybe the diameter of a an adult thumb.. which is why I said it was a baby
