This Garter Snake was telling me that it did not want the camera any closer to it!! Look at that body language!! It did strike at the camera a few seconds later…no harm done to any creature though, lol!! It was on the road and I was urging it to get a move on, which it did, into the brush nearby…I came back later and there was no sign of it, thank goodness, as a few cars had zoomed by since I saw it.

    Cool! Great capture, Tracy! It must have been using the residual heat on the road to warm up. Nice rescue job!

  • Ya…I’ve seen to many poor snakes killed that way…there was a gorgeous milksnake killed by my house a few weeks ago, and they are becoming a threatend species in my area…made me rather sad…
    Thanks very much Mikey!! :O]
