no animals were harmed while taking these photos

I almost stepped on this little beauty. It’s my first snake photo/sighting/handling and I’m not sure it’s proper ID but I could assume it’s a baby garter snake. It’s also not easy to take a photo of said snake while holding it in your right hand and trying to press the shutter with your left. It was gently placed in the brush promptly after this was taken.
