Wednesday Lagniappe: Garden Garter

This eastern garter snake lives in my yard and, I hope, is attracted to eat the voles that are plaguing me...and not my beloved frogs.  I just wish this useful fellow could give me some warning before I get close enough to step on him!  On all 3 feet of him... Here he (she?) is at the door to my garage last week.
Happy gartering!

If he could warn you, he'd be crotalus horridus horridus... and, that would not be a good thing.
