A Baby Ringneck!

My father and I walked his dog after supper. We stopped at the barn to rest because both Dad and dog are old and tire easily. As I opened the gate, I saw a baby ringneck snake slithering across an old pine log. I haven't seen a ringneck since I was a child. I didn't get a picture, but I did find this on Google Images when I got home:
It's about the same size. Ringneck snakes are harmless. They grow to roughly six inches. I was thrilled to death to see it because I hadn't seen one in so long I was afraid they were extinct.
