Today was the day for snakes. We met this lady on our walk today. She was very curious and wanted to get right up to the camera. There were about a million peepers in the area and she looked like she was ready for supper but still took the time to check us out.
It’s always a bit of a shock to see snakes in the woods or on the trail but they are quite harmless.
They blend in to the litter on the forest floor and quietly slide along tasting the air with their tongues.
This is a common garter snake, plentiful and found anywhere in Northern NY.Please share this page
