When Sara and I were heading up to the bridge yesterday to take photos,
I saw the garter snake chilling on the shoulder of the road. I stuck him
in my cargo pocket to use as a prop and to help him retain his three
dimensional qualities. And, yes, the obligatory comments about the
snake in my trousers were made.
I guess he liked the warmth, because he was totally content to just hang
out there. After going through the photos for Sara, and having dinner,
before I let him go, I posed him for photos with Irving.
Long story short, my sister found Irving when she was working on a
cattle drive many years ago and brought him home for me. I think that as
a background he nearly works for making such a friendly and mellow
little snake look almost menacing.

C&C as always are appreciated. For those that are interested, here's
the rest of the set:
The pictures were shot using a 14W LED bulb maybe a foot away as the
key, a bit of aluminum foil as a gobo to keep light off the background,
and room lights as fill.
