Snakes Do Not Pose for Pictures

I found this little snake today trying to warm itself in the sun.  It's December 2nd and he should be in hibernation. He was very sluggish due to the cold so I picked him up and brought him home
in a styrofoam cup.  He certainly enjoyed the warmth of the house because his movements lost the sluggishness and he began to display a certain amount of attitude towards me.  I decided to
photograph him as best I could by placing some black fabric in the bathroom sink and turning on all the bathroom lights.  Here are the results.  Tomorrow will be warmer.  I will return him to
where I found him and hope that he has enough snake sense to find a hole somewhere and hibernate through the winter.  He is a Texas Rat Snake and can grow to be 6 feet in length.
