WARNING: Snake alert.
Autumn is drawing in and that means nature is making the most of the last warm days of summer. Wildlife is hoarding food to make sure of survival. For snakes, who rely on the sun to keep them moving, getting the most of the warmth in order to feed is vital.
This “Wandering” Garter snake, camouflaged against the browning leaves and twigs, was sunbathing. I love the brightness of the colours running down its back. What a way to blend in.
