I am pretty sure this is a copperhead. I was getting ready to do some dyeing and all my stove parts were piled on the stones. He struck at me Yikes! I ran. Hard to get a good picture with a phone from a distance…I am not sure how to get rid of him, so stopped my project. In the last photo you can just see him going underneath the little round thing. There is only one picture of the whole snake and his head was moving but I am fairly certain there were venom pockets.
