Last weekend I was doing some "spring cleaning" in my flower beds when I came face to face with this garter snake in my Mock Orange bush. I don't know why he decided to climb up into the middle of the bush, but he had wrapped himself in a knot around the branches. I got my camera, got down to eye level with him, pulled the branches aside and started snapping photos. He was a great subject, never even tried to leave until I finished! Guess he was just enjoying the sunshine as much as we were.
