Small harmless, non-poisonous garter snakes.   I don't love that these guys frequent our yard, but they do make great photography subjects. 

It's hard to see here, but there's 1 female with 3 smaller males in a small mating ball.

One snake as it slithers away.  Apparently, not too happy that I got too close.

  1. They are amazing photos, what a frenzy of little snakes.

    1. Thanks, Rosemary. I'm really glad that I have a telephoto lens to take these shots. I really don't want to get that close to them.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
