I had been away from my garden for 8 weeks, after breaking my toe this winter just as the snow was melting. So I have been eager to catch up on my weeding and planting. The black flies are gone now, so Sunday I went out with the best intentions. Low and behold there in the middle of the garden was this beautiful garter snake. Being easily distracted, I put down my tools and went in to fetch my camera.

Just as I was stepping in, to line up the shot, I nearly stepped on a second snake that I hadn't notice. So I busied myself taking pictures of the snake in the garden. After a couple of clicks, I noticed something in the bottom of the garden snake picture; a little brown snake. Cool, I thought, 2 snakes in 1 shot. So inside I go to download the pictures.


After an hour or so, I came back outside to see if my snakes had gone. Nope, instead the other garter had joined the first, and all 3 were laying out in the sun. Inside I went to fetch my camera. When I came back out, the 1 garter had decided to lay on top of the brown, while the other garter kept watch. Nobody ate anybody, and after a few more hours, all had had enough and went home!

I was weeding the peony bush I have planted under the mailbox. I checked to see if I got all the weeds and much to my surprise this garter snake was looking back at me.

This is a page about snake photos. We come across snakes in a variety of places, in our yards and gardens, on hikes, and elsewhere. Taking a photo is a typical response to the encounter so that we can identify them later.
