Went out late in the afternoon to check a spot that has produced milk snakes in the past. It was sunny, but not very warm. I didn't see a lot, but since it is early in the season, I am posting it anyway.

I found four Eastern Garter Snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis) and a Brown Snake (Storeria dekayi). All these terrible photos were shot one-handed, in situ under the rocks where they were found.
