Garter Snakes are an uncommon sight most of the year, but in the spring when they come out of hibernation to enjoy the first warmth they are easily spotted and for the most part move slowly. I heard from a person who was interested in garter snakes who was assured that they were not dangerous. He noted from experience, though, that they can bite. I get close to them, but like most snakes they are more scared of me than I am of them. One point about this photograph, it took some time to get a shot where the tongue showed, my subject was not very cooperative.

    • Quite. Seconds of action. Had to anticipate it. Like waiting for a heron to fish.

  4. Great job with catching the flashy tongue. I also like the twisted pose; it adds dynamics to the image…
