I think it's just a Northern watersnake
but he was cool looking and just was chillin on a lillypad!
Ugh, I can't stand snakes...
the only shooting i do of snakes is with a gun. can't stand snakes.
great pic, the head and the plants being in focus looks great
This is a Massasauga rattlesnake. You can tell it is poisonous by its elliptical shaped eye. All non-poisonous snakes in the USA have round pupils except the Coral Snake.
Paul, you are a very brave man for getting this shot. If I came upon this creature, I would be gone like a cool breeze on a summer's day.
well glad I was up on the boardwalk above it and not where it could get me!
I may be wrong be I believe that this snake is being considered to be added to the Federal endangered species list so please do not kill one if you spot another. :smile:
Nice shot but snakes are creepy!
I think you are right. I read online that Michigan is one of their last strong holds.
yes - I was just on the Michigan DNR page and found an observation report to fill out etc
never realized how rare that is - makes me feel even better about being able to see one!
