I've seen a number of snakes in the road thus far, but this is the first snake in the garden this season. With all the lizards I knew to be cautious of snakes, and now with the heat I was poised with my camera, on alert, and ready to attack. Taking pictures, that is.
Sure enough most came out blurry. Of course the snake was freaking out with me running around jamming a camera in his face. I finally turned my back and took a picture of the moon, and when I turned back around to see where he went, he was gone.
