Sorry about that.  by maggie2

Sorry about that.

I stepped on this guy as Wolf and I went for our walk. Then I had to take a bunch of shots, hoping to get that tongue sticking out. Alright...I didn't get it. I guess he was still mad about being stepped on. I did apologize.
Fav! Glad he didn't bite you! Great capture

His head does look a bit flat ;o) Great shot although I don't think I would have got so close xx
August 28th, 2012  
Oh....very cool shot. Love the curves and scales. Well done.
August 28th, 2012  
That eye has a very determined look. I think I would have run a mile if I had stepped on him. A good shot showing clear details of the scales.
August 28th, 2012  
You stepped on him and he didn't bite you? Amazing! Awesome details - I think I can see you in his eye!
August 28th, 2012  
He looks mighty upset about being squashed...
August 28th, 2012  
Wow just as well you never stepped on him!!!! Super shot!!
August 28th, 2012  
Lucky you were not bitten. Nice capture.
August 28th, 2012

Yuck! Should have stepped down harder and got him (sorry, not a fan of snakes!). Great shot!

August 29th, 2012  
Great shot! Love the composition and dof!
August 29th, 2012  
Saw this on PP. What a gorgeous creature. Wonderful colours and textures on his body. Great to have a chance to get so close up....do you know what type this is?
August 29th, 2012  
@Cherrill @victorypuzzle I believe it's a garter snake. Not poisonous. I'm not really afraid of snakes so I enjoyed taking pictures of him.
August 29th, 2012  
Brilliant Maggie! He looks really ticked off though; that's quite a glare he's giving you.:D I don't think he's accepting any apologies. haha Saw this on the PP........Congratulations! The detail is splendid......the pattern on his back puts me in mind of an American Indian beaded artifact. Also very glad to know that he was no worse for the wear after being trod upon. All my best, Les x

Pam
@potsbypam lol! for some reason I thought he bit you so you had to take another type of shots! He looks so mad!
August 29th, 2012

August 29th, 2012

August 30th, 2012

August 30th, 2012  
OK I'm NOT a snake person, you are the brave one to get this shot. Congrats on the PP
August 30th, 2012

August 30th, 2012  
Awesome shot!
August 30th, 2012  
So I'm not the only person who wants to take a photo of a wild snake! Not sure I'd be too calm after I stood on one though.
