Snakes in Concord
Three snake encounters this spring seem worth sharing.
A northern watersnake threesome, found mating in mid-May at Great Meadows. The smaller snakes are the two males.
A 4.5 foot long milksnake crossed my path on the historic cart path behind the Ripley School and near the shoreline of Gowing's Swamp.
A tiny screaming voice in the grass brought my attention to this drama between a garter snake and a frog. This encounter occured in the exact same spot crossed by the milk snake a few days before.

Talk about ambition, that garter snake and the frog!
