It looks like a garter snake to me.
Cool find! and great photos ! I love snakes and get really excited when i find them :) Looks like a common garter snake - they have a pretty huge range, where are you?
Well you are a heck of a lot braver than me, I would have screamed blue bloody murder and ran for the hills.........can you tell I am not keen on snakes....LOLGill
I have a snake that lives in the foundation wall of my garage that looks similar to that. I'm not sure what kind it is; I'm not a snake fan. Ha-ha!Sunny :)
I don't know what kind of snake that is, but I remember catching them when I was a child in California, and I have seen them here in Idaho. Nice snakes. Catch bugs and mice!Thanks for visiting!
What I know about snakes could fill a thimble, but I think it is a garter snake. I like photos of snakes as they intrigue me.
What a great post for Nature Notes & Signs of the Season.It looks like one I found and asked a herper about..an eastern garter snake I think he said. I know many folks don't like them or are uneasy about them and I used to be one of those, but I find them interesting now. Thanks so much for adding this guy (or girl) in..He must have just gotten up from a long winter's nap...Michelle
Sweet little garter snake!Aloha from WaikikiComfort Spiral
Beautiful and fantastic shots !! Simply amazing and fantastic !!
Wow, very brave shots! I wouldn't dare to get near a snake. Have a wonderful day.
I wouldn't have a clue about your snakes but it is a pretty one. SNAP, I have a snake post too. I met it in the garden today.
There are two kinds of snakes, poisonous, and nonpoisonous. That one is nonpoisonous.That is all I know.
Harmless garter snake. Great in your garden...
I am so scared of snakes. This looks like a garter snake.
I got one in my yard just like this. We have to be careful with lawn mower. Also he is youngest and more tan but the same gartner snake.
Definitely a garter snake. We have them here in Seattle too. Haven't seen one for awhile but they like wet places and long grass. This website says they are harmless: http://www.wildaboutgardening.org/en/features/section2/snake/snake.htm I still am cautious of them....find them interesting but not to touch. :) Maria
Hi, again, I did find a better photo on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Garter_Snake It also mentions that they can bite and leave some itchiniess...I knew I didn't want to pick them up for some reason. Ha, ha... Maria
Cool sighting of the snake and great photos.
Denise: Certainly one not to worry you, it is a beneficial Garter Snake.
