|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|WE've been in Ontario for Easter, at my Brother's house. I have bee rea;;y surprised to see so much animal along the autoroute: big hedgehog in trees, sparrowhawks, herons...which we do not really see in Qc.|
Here is a picture I'm really happy about. It is a macro from a common Gater Snake. After that shot, I took it in my hands, and I was really surprised to see it was so soft and a bit warm. Really not like the big pyhton I once had as an teen (Cold, skin like plastic).
I did not find many info on Gater snakes. Anyway, they are everuwhere...except in Montreal!:-)
300mm (macro mode - 70-300mm F4-5.6 II APO Macro Super)

I love this photo. The focus and depth of field are perfect. The onlt thing I might do a little different would be to increase the colour saturation a hair.
Nice shot, very interesting snake.

Good capure of this Gater snake. I would say that he looks a bit suspicious. A little strange that you can see that he is moving according to your exposure: 1/2000 of a second, but on the other hand you used 300 mm focal length.
Anyway, good colour and light and a nice pose for you.
