Photos of the Day - Snake!

Today my intern and I were walking along a trail and she nearly ran into me when I stopped short. The reason I stopped is posted below! It appears to be a Maritime Garter Snake. We had seen a much smaller version of this snake earlier in the week, but this one was super aggressive and was trying to strike at my boot!
