(Land) Snakes and Dandelion Sunsets

 Smooth Earth Snake -  This little snake was not supposed to be in the middle of the lake.  Jeff LeClere, the herpetologist WHO-TV contacted about the snakes identification, confirmed this was a rather rare Iowa snake that does not live in water.  If you look closely at its tail there is an area of injury; it's speculated that the snake was grabbed by a bird that dropped the snake while in flight over the water.  Guess this snake was glad to get a ride back to shore.
