Garter Snakes
Photographer: Beth Galligan
Location: My back yard
Story: 
These 2 spent a month hanging out on the top rail of my dog run (6 feet up) hiding in the clematis. I sent photos to a herpetologist since I'd never heard of them staying together when not hibernating or in a breeding ball and the herpetologist had never heard of it either. Pretty cool!
Digital Alterations: 
I cropped and adjusted the color, detail, and exposure a few ticks with Windows Live Photo Gallery
Camera Information: Cannon EOS Rebel T3 w/ 55-250mm lens
