    I think I would have been shooting with Remington rather than Kodak.

    Cleaning the neighbors pond for her this weekend my son and I got a scare when a Brown Water snake slithered into the pond where he was standing.

    WOW, I see you are in Georgia as well. Is that particular one poisonous?

    One of the things I remember from my 2 years in the US Army at Ft Gordon Ga. was the large signs showing all 4 poisonous snakes and all 3 poisonous spiders which they claimed were only all found at Ft Gordon.

    I came accross a few of them. Scared the hell out of me...

    I know this is a older post , I am in Alabama from Ga. though.There are several poisonous snakes down this way. Two years I had my first encounter with a brown water snake not poisonous but very aggressive they have a bad attitude and will eat your fish and they will bite you as well.Did I mention I love bird netting on the pond..............this guy was close to 3 foot long.

    So while you were shooting it did you also use a gun?

    LOL nope a shovel after I cleaned my pants. I did not even know he was there and I was right beside him hand feeding the fish. I did learn though that when I go out and I smell a musky moth ball like smell to look for them, still not sure why they put off that scent but both snake encounters they were doing that.

    We live right on the edge of alot of woods right now, and a few days ago, I was feeding the fish, and a baby copperhead swam across the pond and into our waterfall. So we had to take down the whole waterfall, and couldn't find him, and as i bent down to pick up a leaf from my pond he jumped out from under a stone i was standing on. My friend used a slate rock. :[ I really didn't want to see it killed, but neighbor ahs kids that sometimes comes over, and that could end badly.

    The only good poisonous snake is a dead one where there are children or pets around.

    I've only seen garden snakes around where we are. Not too sure if they like fish or not. Hope not. :profile:

    luvmyasagis talked about water snakes being very aggressive and I can vouch for that. Several years back when I worked in the ER, (I'm a nurse) a kid was brought in that had been bitten by a snake. The family had taken a heavy stick to it till it no longer moved. They then brought it into the ER with them for identification purposes. (fortunately there are no poisonous snakes in our area) The ER doctor (his name was Larry) took the snake and dumped it in the med room sink assuming it was dead as it had not moved at all since it had been beaten. He proceeded to treat the kid and do the paper work. About 15 min later, he walked into the med room and the snake came rearing up out of the sink at him. He came running out of the med room screaming like a banshee!:) We called him "Jungle Larry" from that day on!;)

    Now that's good. Thanks for the good laugh.

    I had a small pond in CA about 30 years ago that had a regular visitor. It was a 2 foot garter snake that would curl up and patiently wait for one of my cheap feeder fish to pass by. It wasn't until I noticed the missing fish that I found the snake under the ferns. Needless to say, He didn't come back anymore.
