This looks very much like a copperhead to me.
Yet blacks and Browns cannot be excluded.
It has been a good season for snakes (meaning prolific) but they sure are hard to photograph.

Could it be an Australian Copperhead?

Probably 1.5m , so big enough

So not a daily occurrence then (sort of phew!). Looks like largeish scales? Maybe an un-patterned tiger? Nice find anyway. How long was it?

I have lived in the hills for about 25 years and it's the first one I have come across Mark, just annoyed I didn't get a better photo

Hmm.. we've been walking around those streets for 18 years now and haven't seen a snake. There's still hope then ! :)
