More serpent sightings...
This weekend I walked out onto my back patio to eat lunch, & I saw this garter snake laying in the sun.
Instead of scaring it away, I let it sit there a few feet from me while I ate.
It just stayed motionless & watched me the whole time. They are crazy looking creatures.
I also got a more close-up photo below.
I asked him to tell his rattler buddies in the Pocono mountains to leave me alone when I go hiking up there on vacation!
