Garter Snake Figure Eight

garter snake


We found this garter snake at Fort Snelling State Park. I was taking pictures when my dad came closer to it, and it coiled up quickly, took a few bluffing strikes, and ended up slithering away. I shot a bunch of pictures while it was coiling up, and this was one of the most interesting. Its a striking figure eight shape. This picture actually wasn’t zoomed in so far, but I could zoom in a lot in post production to catch the details on its scales and the red colors running down the side.
