Looking Through Foliage | Common Garter Snake | Maine

I’ve always been interested in snakes. Ever since I was little.

I always appreciate any chance I have to photograph snakes in the wild.

Snakes are a challenging subject due to the way they move through our world. They are hard to see and can be challenging to get in good position to photogrpah.

I think I often find snakes to photograph on accident or by pure chance.

Sometimes I show up to a location where I know I may see a snake and actually see one, but that is the exception that proves the rule.

I saw this Common Garter Snake at Wolfe’s Neck Woods State Park in Maine.

I like how the snake divides the image in half. One side of the image is the bright green foliage. The other side of the image is the dull brown of the forest floor.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/250 sec. f/5.6.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I hope those of you that like snakes enjoyed the photo today.

There are a few more photos of snakes that I have taken here in this gallery of Animals.
