Egg Thief

Good shot! Amazing how big a thing a snake can stretch its head over.

If you never have read it, you really, really need to read this Ron Rash story called "Hard Times." I think you would like it and get it. Here's a link to a free version: https://www.jstor.org/stable/40211528?seq=1/subjects

Might have trouble getting that one back without breaking it!
 
Nice one Nic

Its a Grey rat snake?
 
When we had chickens, I caught a fellow like that trying to swallow an egg. Got the egg, and escorted the snake to another less occupied corner of the property. 2 days later, I caught him again. He went for a long ride that time.

Neat shot of that egg eater!

I don't think I'll ever forget my grandmother reaching up into a nest box to get the eggs out and one of those sliding down her arm. My grandfather and I were on the other side of the house, and we IMMEDIATELY knew something was bad wrong. I don't think I ever saw my grandmother any more shook up.

When ole preacher catches a thief he has a word of prayer and escorts him out of the pen with a sword so he can't come back in-- usually works😇( View attachment 973542 Gen. 3)

I have to go 100 miles to the east back to my old home place to see yellow rat snakes. I just don`t ever see them over this way.
