San Francisco Gartersnake (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia)

Visiting a common walking trail one afternoon, a few of us were able to observe 15-18 individuals, at one point I sat down on the trail, and watched 5 or so individuals forage, bask, and even witnessed some frisky behavior of a male. These time of observations are what I cherish and enjoy significantly in the field, just enjoying nature with the least amount of interaction outside photography as possible.
