Snake

I seem to be having trouble getting to Blogger lately. If and when I do get time to blog, either the photos won't load or I cannot even get Blogger on my computer. Oh well, when I can . . .

Here is yesterday's "quick" blog of one of the things I found on Friday, between rain storms, while looking for flowers.



That's right, Thamnophis sirtalis, the Common Garter Snake.

Nice picture of the snake, but my eyes kept going to the dried leaves beneath it. Kind of hard to find leaves of this color as the summer season goes on.

I was in deep woods where the sun could not get down to the ground, hence no grasses or other vegetation. I had not noticed the dry leaves until I went to put up the photo this morning. It does look a bit odd for this time of year when we cannot even see the ground in most places.

hi wanderer... yes i love the shot of the common garter snake too.
did you see the dead snake on Manitoulin after the drumming and dance thing? it was on the road towards the water. small with red markings. i wondered what kind of snake it might be. have used the image in a couple of my composite works.

and i too have had problems at times getting onto blogger. but it usually passes the next day.
