Common garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalis

comment from Pseudacris on Flickr ... this is a Common garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis). It is likely an intergrade between the Puget Sound Garter (Thamnophis sirtalis pickeringii) and the Oregon Red-Spotted Garter (Thamnophis sirtalis concinnus). You can tell by the red spots on the side of the garter snake, which T. elegans from Washington never have. Nice find!

Hiking along the Duckabush river trail

These are mycotrophic plants that obtain their organic carbon from a host green plant by tapping into an intermediary mycorrhizal fungus attached to the roots of the host plant.

Myco-heterotrophy is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis.
