I will warn you, if you don’t like snakes, look away.
This is one of my garter snakes. I think there are about 3 around the yard.
He loves to lay out in the sun, on the rocks, or ledges.
He was quite cooperative for the photo session. I was using the telephoto lens, so I’m not actually that close.
I’m sure he’ll surprise me more often this summer, but really, we get along just fine.
