I have shot this absolutely harmless little snake at island on the St.John lake - near by Simcoe lake ...
It first scared me a little but then, after a while when I understood that this is not rattlesnake of any kind, curiosity replaced fear and I made a few shots.
Later I found that this is one of the Garter snakes - they are widespread in North America and no not bear any poison. If you meet one don't harm it - make picture
