yikes .. Im not a snake fan but thats a great ( and close ) shot
Thanks Elaine. It’s okay to get close to these. They’re completely harmless. When I was little my grandpa would hold them so I could see them up close. I’ve never figured out how he managed to catch them though…they’re really fast.

Very nice snake photo. I always have trouble with photographing snakes — so difficult to get the long thin body framed nicely.
Thanks Anthony! I love photographing snakes, though it can be pretty difficult when they’re in the wild like this one. They tend to frighten more easily than the ones I’ve photographed in zoos. Of course, it is nice to not have dirty zoo glass to deal with :)
Beautiful capture Veronica
Thanks so much!
Very well done , Veronica ! These guys are excellent snakes& come in a variety of slightly different patterns & color variations though very subtle called both Garden & Garter snakes, like you say very gentle and harmless
Thanks so much Rick! Great info :)
