So noted and I appreciate the support for the argument above. I rarely see copperheads or water moccasins around: one copperhead in my driveway and two water moccasins next to the creek, but 100 yards or so down the greenway from the house, in a decade doesn't count as "often" to me. I've had four snakes in the house in the same decade time period, all four common black snakes or rat snakes.
This one was very docile, and had clearly been in the house for more than a couple of minutes. Once he adapted to my hand, he stayed there long enough for me to get the camera and get two pictures, and lowered his head slightly to rest on my index knuckle.
