please note that these snakes are very dangerous I take certain precautions in order to get this close to them. in this case I pulled next to him and took the shots from inside my truck. #47175

Thank you, Lori, I added those remarks after I learned that someone else tried to get a shot from close up after they saw one of my pics from last year, they didn't get bit, luckily, they also didn't get the shot, they were too busy not getting bit, lol.

Oh Yes! He looks a lot meaner than Sneaky! Our feared one here is the copperhead, they are very aggressive. Great capture Tim! #146816
