I was shooting a high school senior photo shoot on location and came upon this guy.
The mother of the client was happy I noticed it and kept her away, but was puzzled when I dropped to the ground and started shooting pics of it with my 70-200 2.8. :p

Her son came over and got a few pics with his cell phone but the mom stayed about 50ft back. haha

Very nice distraction you have there Jeremy! I would have been taking shots of the snake too!

Good ones, Jeremy. I always think about these guys when I've been pursuing birds in AZ and I'd be just as happy if I never see one.

Excellent shots of an interesting critter Jeremy, but I'm like Al, I'd be happy to never see one of those guys. Here in NS we (fortunately) don't have any venomous snakes :)
