Whilst we were adding stuff to the dumpster, Chris spotted a garter snake and quickly go me to take a look. I got there just as he disappeared up a drainage pipe. So, I went back to get my phone so I could take a photo when he came out. 

He wasn’t very publicity inclined as he tried to avoid having his photo taken,  but I did manage to get a few as he made his way across the garden.

I even managed to get one of him looking all cute sticking he head out of a chipmunk hole he went down.
