The weather was just too nice today that I had to get outside. My main target was valley garters and I also wanted to check for turtles in the area I saw the painted turtle last year.
As I was walking along the trail I heard chorus frogs in the distance. I took a side trail and took a little clip of them calling. https://flic.kr/p/mrxrV8
When I arrived to the spot I wanted to look for garters, it didn't take too long before I started finding some. I found about a dozen or so valley garters.
I also found a few wandering garters.
And a couple I caught in the act.

Then off to look for turtles. I was suprised at how many I saw. I saw about 10 painted turtles and 3 red eared sliders.
The only picture of a bullfrog I bothered to take.
Hope you guys were able to get out and take advantage of the warm weather too.
