Help identifying a northern indiana snake

Hi, we were out walking close to lake Michigan when we came across this snake. I forgot to see if it had sits or round pupils. I know almost nothing about snakes, but it did something odd to me when I got close. It flattened the part out immediately behind its head that reminded me of what I've seen of cobras in pictures (I know it isn't a cobra). Anyway just looked a bit different than the regular old garter snakes that I see around occationally. It went off into the woods but I'm just curious what it might be. Thanks

Did it look like this? What I can make out in the picture, it's an eastern hognose, heterodon platirhinos.
