Landscaping Interlude, with Snake

Can you spot it?

The snake?

It's right there in the center of the image.

An Eastern Garter Snake.

This was the view as I spotted it, while out moving plants around the yard (bayberry, elderberry, and phlox today). I snapped a quick shot with my iPhone (above), and then went and got my other camera, which a significantly longer lens (below). (Well, one of my other cameras ... I've a bunch.)


I don't know if this is typical behavior for this species, but it would move a bit and then stop, seemingly watching to see what I would do.

Eventually, after posing nicely, it headed off into the bushes, having had enough of me.

I do hope it is a resident and not just passing through. Or that I didn't scare it away.


A nice break from all the digging Patty makes me do. 😉
