Northern water snake

Northern water snake, Rondeau Provincial Park, July 12, 2019.

Out for a bike ride and went around what looked like a twig on the road.
Turned out it was a small, 6 inch, northern water snake.
Didn't have my camera so I used my Iphone for a close up.
Nerodia sipedon sipedon
Northern Water snakes give live birth (ovoviviparous) to 5-60 young in late summer or early fall.
