Surprising Macro Photography for an October Day
Eastern Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis) Prescott-Russell Recreational Trail, Ontario, Canada.
Every year I go with a friend on a long hike along the Prescott-Russell Recreational Trail to Orleans. Most of the time there is very little to see as it is always in late Autumn that we go on our stroll along the boundaries of the Mer Bleue Conservation Area. Came across this adorable Garter Snake who was a great poser for the camera. Macro subjects were found on the edge of the path & birds fluttered in the trees, flora & fauna was there to be discovered. I guess you just have to take a closer look to find the little things of this nature world.
Tongue out & slithering amongst the leaves.
Looking mean but he was nice & friendly.
Clouded Sulphurs (Colias philodice) fluttered in the breeze of the day.
