Garter Snake

Garter snake0919I was at the bog yesterday thinking about a similarly nice day we had back in November, I photographed a Garter Snake that day and I remember thinking that it was awfully late in the year to be seeing snakes. That’s a strange thing to be thinking about right now, and before I could even finish that strange thought, I heard a rustling in the leaves. Haha! Snake! I shoulda’ known, my strange thoughts always happen for a reason! This was a baby snake exploring the bog for the very first time, and it was quite comical. He’d go zipping past me to left then turn around and go back to the right, stopping periodically to check me out. He investigated every leaf and slithered over or under every little obstacle. I could tell he was having a blast, just like any other baby animal experiencing the world for the first time.
