Slipped a piece of hardware cloth over the barrel of lens to protect myself in case the snake tried to bite. These guys are very peaceful. I see them nearly every-time I photograph in the river bottoms in the area. Slitted pupils and a triangular head with a pit indicate the snake is poisonous.

D800, 200mm f/4.0D ED-IF, tripod. 1/2s, f14, 125iso

Thanks for looking,

Tom
