Copperheads are more of a problem in the South. They have a pattern similar to the diamonds on a rattler but they are brown.
"Oooh, pretty!"

Same snake, usually called Cottonmouth Water Moccasin.

Yet another reason I won't live much further south than I am already.

Not around here. I could go and get a big fat cottonmouth right this minute. I'm in Dixie, and I live near a swamp.

I was outside watering my plants and suddenly in the grass I saw a snake. I jumped the fence and RAN. I told a neighbor who knows the area and was "brave" enough to bring him into the yard to show him. Well my eyes were so mixed on where he was when I last saw him that I walked by him and stood on my deck. Suddenly my neighbor called my name and motioned toward him while pointing. I screamed and ran again. He laughed, it was a simple garden snake. Now I was raised on Long Island, not exactly a "city gal" but, I never saw a snake, garden or otherwise wen I lived there. I saw one when we were looking at property here and ran, another sunning on a neighbors property and this guy. Not thrilled and I now scan the yard before going out.

Picture isn't detailed enough to properly ID, but is good enough to see it isn't venomous.
