Garter Snake

Mystic, CT

I guess one should expect to see all kinds of "nature" when walking the trails of the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center.  I literally stepped on this little guy while walking the trail.  He didn't seem to be harmed at all since he slithered off into the underbrush, but not before posing for this quick shot.  Even zoomed in close, and then cropping the photo, one needs to look pretty closely to make out this common snake amidst the twigs and leaves. 


  1. You and Revrunner are into snakes this week! Not a favourite sighting for me.

  2. Garter snakes are great for the environment keeping many insect and rodent populations in check. I had to look carefully to see this example. Interesting photo.
