Project 52 - Things that Grow

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
Kind of scary looking, right?
Actually this baby Garter Snake came slithering across my path and was only about a foot or so long. Any bigger and I might of screamed like a girl and ran the other way.
This little guy though has a lot of growing to do before it could make me totally lose it and run screaming into the night!!
After I got over my shock of seeing him and actually wanted to take more photos of him, he instead just wanted to get the heck away from me as fast as he could slither!

I don't love snakes... heck I don't even like snakes, but thats a pretty cool picture. How close were you and what kind of lens were you using? I like the details in the scales.

Such a handsome creature.

He's big enough for me to run like the girl I am! :)
Great shots!

Very beautiful find! The leaves and the snake's head looks similar. Wonder if it's camouflage or coincidence.

Your bravery was rewarded with a really fine catch -- The color and detail of the top view is terrific.

Beautiful shots! Love the deep colors! We have some garter snakes hanging around the yard, too. Your blog header is fantastic!
