Hi Bruno,

I've seen this and your other shot of the Garter Snake and thought I'd comment. Both are good shots but the other one is a much better viewpoint. The leaf that covers most of the snake's head is very distracting. I appreciate it can be very difficult to get a good viewpoint without scaring the snake away but a view point just a few centimetres to the right of here looks like it would have shown the whole head in side profile. Or alternatively maybe crouching a few centimetres lower would have put the leaf above the snake's head.
