Mossy Sunning Spot

Hello! It’s late November, and I’m out in search of green — green leaves, needles, anything in a landscape that’s now dominated by the muted greys and browns of the season. Camera out, ready to snap a picture of an almost florescent patch of moss, when I see that someone else has found it first. And what a pose!  Seconds after I put my camera away, the garter snake started sticking his tongue out to get a whiff of me. Bright red, it matched the color of the British soldier lichens beautifully. Now, there’s some wintertime color!
