I was walking past the garden the other day and the pepper plants had a guest. It was the Common Garter Snakes. They are referred to as Gardener Snakes because of the time they spend in the garden. This was actually two snakes curled together for warmth high in the plant to get the sun.I don't like snakes that well but a chance for a photo overcomes my fears.
You can see the way the two are weaved together.
So my final shot is a close up of that reptilian eye and skin.
I do hope you enjoyed a close look at the gardener's friend. They eat bugs and other pests in the garden. I hope they are not there at harvest time.
