Northern Watersnake

Nerodia sipedon sipedon

Notes:

This water moccasin came out of the water right in front of me, when I was fishing. It had a fish in its mouth, and it wasn't scared of me, at all! It even came my way and when I didn't move, it dropped the fish and raised its neck. Scary.

I believe this is a water snake species... Not a cottonmouth.
