A Garter snake in the grass for mellow yellow Monday


Wow! I love this picture! No, I'm not a lover of snakes, but my son Davis took this picture and sent it to me. Davis, this is a magnificent photo! Thank You for sharing with us. Researching a bit this morning about garter snakes I have discovered that a garter snake is sometimes called a ribbon snake. Do you see the ribbon strips on this snake's body? Garter snakes are often black with yellow like this one is.

Got pictures with yellow? Why not post them on the mellow yellow Monday meme by connecting to this link. http://mellowyellowmonday.blogspot.com/ Or You can click on its icon found on this page in the right column by finding it by scrolling down this page. If your plan is not to post a photo, then perhaps you will just want to enjoy all of the yellow contributions posted there.
