I am not sure what they were doing, but these two snakes were very much involved in dance steps done together…even as I parted the branches to get a better look!
My knowledge of snakes is limited, I know they make me queasy, and that is about it…but I had to get closer to see if I could figure out what they were up to. Guess I am a voyeur!

***These are ribbon snakes, totally harmless, and part of the Garter Snake family, but much larger, growing to be about 12-25 long, their tail making up one third of its body structure. They live by wetlands, streams, and still ponds, and breed in the spring-so I guess I am not a voyeur!*
