He looks very menacing for such a mild little snake.
Great capture! The pose and angle makes it look more intimadating than a garter snake!
Nicely shot. Good, low-to-the-ground perspective with sharp detail to his head. The crop also draws the viewer's eye directly to the subject without a lot of clutter.
Great catch and way too close for me, even though it's a garter snake. It's still a snake.
He's doing his best to imitate a 'mean snake'! Superb capture, Tom! Vote
Best to you,
