Artist's Description

Normally I don’t see the snakes coming out till at LEAST April………..nor the bullfrogs or beetles. I’m not sure if this is a sign of what’s to come or if nature is confused about what time of year it is right now.
First snake for the year already………this is a harmless garter snake. Harmless in that it is non-venemous……..it DOES have fangs and teeth though…as well as a NASTY smelling defensive goo it’ll more then happily squirt all over me when I handle them.
After her photo opportunity, I let her go back into the leaves along the riverbank where we found her.
