Friendly Garden Critter

When my little dog Socks and I were in our yard on Sunday we saw something interesting.
 He was friendly - he only hissed at me once!
Snakes are welcome in my yard as they eat voles and other annoying things. And they make for great  Camera Critters posts.

  12. Good photos Al.
    I like snakes too. I think they are good for balance in nature. Just take care with vipers.
