Little Slytherin

This little garter snake gave me equal parts fright, laughter, and envy today.  It made my heart pound when it unexpectedly slid out from under the garden bed I was clearing, made me laugh at myself for being so easily reduced to a 180 lb. chicken, and then mesmerized me with its ability to slither.  Wouldn't it be great to slither?

I believe its one of those rare Brown Racer snakes found on Hornby Island. Garter snakes are more blackish in color with yellow stripes and orange bloches.
