[NAFEX] Snakes in raspberries

Thanks for the comments. Lots of possibilities, apparently!

The snake wasn't in a place where it could get sun - the raspberry patch 
would be a terrible choice for that - but maybe it wouldn't know that 
before climbing up there. It just seemed so odd. I assumed that it was 
after prey, but I couldn't imagine what (note that I've NEVER seen a 
frog or a toad in my yard, in 25 years).

Well, a snake's view of things is likely to be different than mine, but 
I could see it being safer there than on the ground. And I didn't think 
about bird's eggs. I imagine they would be a tasty snack for any snake 
that could find a nest.

Thanks again. I just wondered.
