Poison Ivy with Garter Snake

Walking through a field the other day, I came upon a little snake sunning on a rock. And surrounded by poison ivy on all sides.

Lots of people might react more strongly to the snake, but for sure, the poison ivy is way more scary.

Garter snakes hardly bite and if they do, they are not poisonous. But for 80% of people poison ivy will cause an itchy rash that can ruin your whole summer!
