Repeat Offender

Oh no another snake! I spotted this Garter Snake hunting goldfish in our garden pond this afternoon. I grabbed my Canon 7D MkII, a 12mm extension tube for close focusing and my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens. I then crawled on my belly to the edge of the pond and focused on the snakes eye. The snake stayed in place until I stood up and then it slithered into the pond. The camera settings used were AV mode,ISO 400, 1/800th of a sec at F 8.0. The camera was handheld with the lens foot on the ground. Photographed in Mendocino County, Northern California. #TeamCanon God's love and blessings to all, chris
