A small species of colubrid snake found crossing a gravel path, and then photographed on a yellow towel I had in my backpack. No bigger than a foot long, with bright yellow ventral coloration (see 3rd photo).
Spotted crossing 'Snake Road', a 2.5 mile gravel road in Illinois known for the large number of reptile and amphibian species that can be found in the area (see photo #4 of sign posted at northern end of Snake Road).
