l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Garter snake April, 2, 2010

We were very surprised to see this snake crossing the road by flooded fields in Minesing area on April 2nd. Earliest l have ever seen a snake out. Luckily my husband saw it. My son and l got out and made sure it got to safety.
A good look at the snakes tongue. l had my 500 mm lens on the camera allowing me to get in nice and close from a distance. We just walked behind it to get it off the road.
It was clearly agitated from our presence. But we felt that better than being run over. Which is a huge problem for snakes and turtles. And frogs to for that matter.
Although not big around the girth. This garter snake was at least 24 or so inches long. A very nice snake indeed. Living to see another day.
