    Don't feel bad about snakes hating you. I tried taking a shot of a mushroom one time and a hidden nest of fire ants decided to tear me up.

    Great shot. It looks like a Garter Snake to me. Most of the time are not aggressive but can be. If ya get to close.

    It looks like a garter snake to me, but i wouldnt bet on it, knowing my luck it would be the most poisoness snake ever. Well done though, getting any picture of such a shy animal great, and one doing this even better :).

    Just the other day I was trying to take a picture of the snake in my front yard, and he wouldn't stop moving. Snakes can be pretty tough subjects, haha...cool photo.
