Cottonmouth, South Carolina, USA

A Cottonmouth snake sunning itself on some leaves just off the boardwalk in South Carolina. I gave it plenty of room, but still was able to capture this image. This is saying something, since I am definitely not a snake person and usually take off running. I know snakes serve a valuable purpose in the environment, but I don’t  want to be close even to a garter snake. Even though I am a wimp about snakes; when I am in their environment I leave them alone. Still I found him interesting and he was far more interested in working on warming up.

Fact: The cottonmouth is a venomous water-moccasin. However; not all water-moccasins are cottonmouths.

Nikon ISO 900, 1/250th sec., f/6.30, Focal length 220.00mm, no flash.

Waves crashing on shore,

pelicans dipping, diving.

Whitecaps endless new.

Scrap bag overflows,

more colors than the rainbow.

Cut, Piece, Sew, Quilt, Done!
