Snake in the Yard

I was weed whacking in the back yard and noticed this guy in the woods behind the fence. The bottom pic is more or less straight from the camera. Looks like he might have had lunch recently, based on the good sized bulge on the left side of the pic, outter ring. The rest of the pics have had some simple editing in Light Room.
This guy must have had rattler envy. I couldn’t resist trying to pick him up. When reached for him as he crawled away, he slithered under some sticks and stuff, leaving his tail in the leaves. The shook it back and forth, making the leaves rattle. I couldn’t make out any rattles, but, who knows…
