Thanks, Julie! It is too bad about the bees, but the spiders don't discriminate. Garter snakes are rear fanged, very mildly poisonous — they are considered harmless to humans.
I always feel sorry for Bees caught in webs .. I've even released them before. I know .. Silly ah. That spider looks like it has a feast ready to go. Are garter snakes poisonous Tim? I would have sprinted off either way

The snake is really pretty - I'm glad Laurie caught it. The spider is pretty interesting.
