Hunting in the deep dark woods and further creative ventures
I think that snakes are one of the coolest things ever. Today, I came home to this particular specimen trying to get into our house. It was curled up against our front step, and occasionally leaping up in a snake like way attempting to get in. Evidently, it could feel the fact that the house was warm. Being a snake, it probably would have much rather been inside a warm house, instead of the cold wind. Eventually, I tried to herd it towards the grass, so that it might at least be protected by something other than our house.
Have you ever watched snakes move? It's terribly neat.
For a garter snake, this one was pretty big. It was about an inch or so thick, and quite long. The blue is our door, and it comes to almost the middle. Pretty little thing.
