many snakes

I went for a mountain bike ride this afternoon to the Marin Headlands. It must be warming up, as while riding I saw 4 snakes. They have come out of hibernation and are now out hunting.
今日の午後Marin Headlandsにマウンテンバイクに乗った。乗りながら蛇4匹を見た。暖かくなるだろう。最近冬眠から出てくる。

2 were garter snakes (one shown in the photo on top) and 2 were gopher snakes (the lower picture).

Actually I saw 5 snakes. The 5th snake was in the talons of a flying hawk.

Yes, this must be the season... I saw a large rattlesnake at Water Dog today.

Thanks for the comment. When I was in Okazaki (愛知県), I would sometimes see snakes out near the rice paddies.
