Let me add to your knowledge of garter snakes out west -

the day was hot
the sweat did pour
i pulled at weeds
i do abhor

i sought some shade
my skin to cool
and there you were
you were no fool

but i had entered
your domain
your meal engulfed
you made your claim

i watched your eyes
your checkered back
i marveled at
the fear you lack

you watched me
you didn't dash
you worked it down
that slippery stash

but once you finished
your delight
you slipped completely
outta sight

there's one less slug
and one fat snake
a Kodak moment
this did make!!!

I had no camera at hand and knew there was only this way to preserve that incredulous moment!!!!!!!!!!! A garter snake eating a slug!!!!!!!!!!!
