BE careful in the evening
This was the second copperhead I saw last evening. The first got away because I was a chicken. I can find them anytime if I go out in my yard at just dark or early evening. They lay against things like a railroad tie or just stretched out. I guess they are waiting for things to happen by. My Puffy died but I used to call him paranoid Puffy (cat) he would sneak around like something was going to get him - I think he was seeing the copperheads and was very careful.
