I was out in the woods for a couple of hours this morning for a class, I found this beautiful garter snake on the edge of a vernal pool, it swam across to the other side in the blink of an eye. I jumped across and snapped a few shots. Marvelous creature! This photo was taken with the 18-55mm stock lens 1/125, F/7.1 . I have been busy with school and work, the semester is almost over, so I will be posting more photos as I have more time.
