New Backyard Friends

We have quite a few backyard friends.
Frogs, squirrels, chipmunks, spiders, snakes, geese, ducks, rabbits.
Our newest friends are kinda rare!

We had a family of Cranes hangout all day today

Backyard Friends

As soon as it warmed up some the SNAKES came out.
I have found 5 of the little friends so far.
Sue was out front planting some flowers and this one crawled across her bare foot.

Needless to say that it was very exciting for a couple of minutes.

These are the Common Garter Snake.
The ones that I can catch I move to the empty field behind the house.
