Snake in the grass…

Literally! I was working outside today when I came across this albino snake sleeping in the shade of our motor home. Initially, I took the photo so I could check the internet to find out what type of snake it was (appears to be an albino Eastern Garter Snake). I liked this shot, so I did a little post processing. Technical specifics of the shot in the expanded post.

The photograph was taken with my Nikon D70 and a Nikkor 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 G VR lens. The VR stands for vibration reduction, which make it possible to take pretty sharp photos without having to use a tripod. It is my favorite lens and I find myself using it all the time.

The photo was minimally post-processed in Adobe Lightroom v1.3 and Photoshop CS3.
