Red-sided garter snake

Okay, so it took a while...

Back in the first year of this blog, I posted some photos of a plains garter snake from the garden...and promised to follow up with red-sided garter snake pictures. I didn't expect it to be ten years before I had both snake and camera at the same time and place, but so it was. These were taken while fishing with Jessa and Ellie at Fremont Lakes last week; as I hinted last time, I only ever see red-sideds near water.

Meet Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis.
