I did about 20 minutes of herping at a spot near my house today and found some cool Eastern Garters.

The first one that I came across was this juvenile, underneath a rock. It wasted no time going into "body flattening mode."


A little while later I flipped a few roofing shingles and found two big garters right next to each other. This one had a very "clean" appearance and looked like it had recently shed. It had a stub tail (not seen in photo).


After photographing the first snake, I went back to the shingles to find the second snake. I only caught a glimpse of it the first time around and its "orangish" coloration had me thinking it was a milk snake. But it was an unusually-colored garter.


Here's one more photo of it. Like the garter found with it, it had a stub tail (which was somewhat bloody). This snake reminded me of the one Jeff Cochran posted last month.


It was a good day to go gartering!
