Out for a swim

Last Thursday, Christina Budd of Sunshine Haven Photography snapped this common garter snake swimming in Fernan Lake. She posts on her Facebook wall: "It's a big one, too. It's hard for you to tell, but I took this from a bridge and I used a 300mm lens. I learned something new. I didn't know garter snakes in Idaho can grow up to 52 inches. Wow!" You can see more of Christina's swell outdoors art by clicking on her Sunshine Haven Photography Facebook page here.
