I do enjoy a nice snake every now and again. Especially when I know the serpent in question cannot hurt me. This is a harmless Garter Snake. We found Sumo playing with it on the drive way about ten days ago. Back before it started snowing in New Hampshire.
I was really quite happy with half a dozen shots I got from this fellow, so here’s a larger set than normal. Please enjoy!
All were shot with a Nikkor 105mm micro lens and SB700 fired through an umbrella for lighting. I took these shots outside after dark, so the black you see here is just my back yard.
