Snake in a Pond

I came across this snake in a small pond I was at yesterday afternoon. It isn’t a very big snake – make 12-15″ long. It was a very, very fast swimmer too. I followed it until it went into the brush at the side of the pond and wasn’t able to locate it after that. I had wanted my husband to hold it while I was photographing it but he had high-tailed it out of there as soon as he saw it.

This is only the second snake I’ve seen since I moved to Oregon 16 years ago. I wish I would see more.
