    I ran into this guy while out shooting birds. It's that time of the year.

    Almost looks like a Bull Snake - Kind of difficult for me to tell - the eyes didn't appear to be elipitical in shape - more round.........From the angle - didn't appear to be a poisonous snake - Only about 20% of the snake encounters are with poisonous snakes.........Best advice though - leave them be - they'll usually leave you alone as well :) 

    Great pictures though....

    From what I could find on the internet it matches up with a cottonmouth rather closely.:smile:

    Scare the devil out of me.
    Yep be careful for sure.

    I try to look all around me all the time.
    Great shots.

    Hope that was a very longggggggg lens:>))
  6. Well, not matter what kind of snake it was, I'd be running in the opposite direction! And like Gale said - I hope that was a llllooonnngggg Lens!

    I give these guy's all the room they need.
  8. Jimmy,
    You're correct - that is a cotton mouth & from your pictures - a very big one. I hope you had a real large lens - because you don't want to get close to one. They can be real mean. I see them throughout the summer when I'm running in the park down by the river.
    Jowever - they are both great shots!

    Nice shot Jimmy. Looks like that guy has been eating quite well, nice and plump.

    Nice image of a beautiful animal. Looks healthy. The only one I've seen was on vacation near New Orleans before the "storm".
