It was forty-something degrees and windy today. Not the best weather, but sometimes the urge to go herping overrules the weather conditions. I decided to check out this area.



I was hoping to see some Blanding's Turtles, but had no luck seeing those "cold tolerant" herps. But there were other turtles out - triple Sliders.



Quadruple Painteds.



Birds were singing and some flowers were even starting to bloom, like Colt's Foot.



But then I saw something even more cool - the first snakes of the year - Eastern Garters.



Not a bad cold weather herping day at all!
Third Eye Herp
