Common Garter Snake Portrait

Thamnophis sirtalis
We had snake babies this summer. They all live in the original granite foundation under the main house. The mother snake is huge. I don't think this is the mother snake because we have a bigger one. But I managed to get a good shot of the head of this beauty when she stuck her head out from the foundation. There are also red-bellied snakes living there (photos coming soon).

I just learned tonight that these harmless to people and pets garter snakes (also called garden snakes) are the only snake in Alaska. Fascinating!
