Another Backyard Denizen

OK, this guy scared the daylights out of me.  Well, startled the daylights out of me anyway.  And I am pretty sure the feeling was mutual.

He didn't want to have his picture taken.  I followed him around with the camera and he kept moving (spoiling my pictures!) making this one the best I could get.

This two-stripe gartersnake was long (over 3 feet) but harmless.  At least to me.  If I were a snail or a slug I'd be in trouble.  Since I am not, this guy is welcome in my garden anytime!

Though if he'd announce himself, clear his throat or something so I'd know when he was there, I'd be appreciative.
