Lunchtime Walk Photos 8/29/2017

It was a bit cloudy but warm when I went for my walk at lunch today and I was pleased to see plenty of garter snakes slithering around as I was walking.

Unfortunately, however, I was not able to get a photo of any of them. This isn't really that unusual though because I've found there are only three ways I can get a decent shot of one:

1. I get the photo before the snake sees me. This considerably more difficult than it sounds.
2. The snake sees me but thinks I can't see it. This happens more often but, because they do get nervous easily, requires getting the photo as fast as possible.
3. The snake is eating/stalking prey. This is rare but, the one time I had it happen, I was able to stand right next to it and it just ignored me.

Fortunately, even though I wasn't able to get a photo of a snake today, I did see plenty of frogs/toads and other signs of life and was still able to come away with something. Here are some of the photos I took:
