 Little guy i found,is it a garter?

I found this little guy in my yard and decided to keep it.I normally would not take an animal from the wild but there are so many around here i said what the heck,why not.I tried feeding him crickets for the first week and he wanted nothing to do with them,so i tried some nice worms from outside and he loves them!Now that It’s eating I’m going to try some other stuff to keep the diet varied.

So what is it,it appears to be an Eastern Garter to me.
