Nice catch Arne. The only thing better than a snake picture is a snake video 馃槉 Congratulations on the nomination. Thanks for sharing.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

GREAT PIC! Every year I look forward to GrandMother gartersnake to emerge on our few acres. Not sure where her lair is but the baby snakes abound every year in the unmowed areas!
