Pardon Me, Snake

Pin It

I wish I could say that I just happened upon this gorgeous creature while strolling through my garden, but the truth is I was striding with great purpose from the house to my office and almost stepped on it. Not my favorite way to encounter snakes, even relatively friendly ones like this California Red-Sided Gartersnake, as it takes my heart forever to calm down. (Alwyn, are you reading this?) Please do click on the photo to see the close up. It's beautiful.

Graceful is a good word to describe them, Anne.

Pretty, huh, Paz?
