Any snake experts out there? I came across this guy while walking the woods at Plesant Ridge Park Tuesday:
Garter Snake, but that's based on Google images.... (click on photo for larger image)
He was basking on the trail, I'm glad I didn't step on him (her?). I was going to try for a closer photo, but he/she/it was increasingly agitated at being disturbed, and made a quick retreat to the underbrush.
