Snake climbs pine tree
Photographer: Jonathon Dewald
Location: backyard
Story: 
Watched this snake try to climb a Holly tree where several bird feeders hang. It slipped repeatedly on the slick bark before pausing on the ground for about 10 minutes after which it went a few feet over and tried a pine tree which gave much better traction. Once it reached overlapping branches it moved horizontally again and poised a few feet away from the feeders.
