Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis, the Eastern garter snake;
Brevard county, Florida (31 July 2016).
A little electric blue action going on with this one — and, in fact, many of our local garters in Flagler, Volusia, and Brevard counties. In this part of Florida, the Eastern garter snakes sport a fantastic array of blues, greens, and blue-greens. This individual was photographed in the Merritt Island region.
