This small garter snake was out and about on a very cold day.  Initially, he had tried to warm up in the sun on some gravel but got caught when a cloud passed over the sun then he could not move.  Result, a perfect opportunity to photograph a skittish snake very close up. I hope he recovered later from having a camera stuffed in his face by a big ugly thing.
