  1. I don’t think I could have stood still long enough to take something like this. 🙂
    Wonderful composition – really nice shot!

  2. Thanks for all your nice comments, everybody! 🙂

    Yeah, snakes give me the heebie jeebies, too! This one was about two feet long and just a bit slimmer than a garden hose. As you can see, it blended into the foliage really well. Fortunately, there aren’t too many poisonous species in NC, but there are some. In case I get bitten in the leg, I’ll have to teach Gail how to cut me, suck the poison out, then spit it out, like in the old westerns.

    Ha. I just read that to Gail and she said, “Yuck. Looks like you’re going to die.” (Maybe I have too much life insurance.)

    1. That’s the problem, they’re hard to see. I almost stepped on this one!

      You probably have a few in Minnesota, but only for your two weeks of Spring, Summer and Fall. 😉
