I found a tiny garter snake today while weeding my garden. It was so little and delicate that it was resting on a leaf of a large weed I was about to pull up. While out and about in the yard, I always see garter snakes. They are my buddies; eating the bugs that would otherwise be chomping down on my vegetables. I've never seen a garter this itty bitty before. Must be a youngin'. In the second photo above, I used my pointer finger for size comparison.
