Yikes! Scary looking bugger. Thankfully, I haven't seen any of those since I was a kid.

I don't remember seeing any here in my life, although I have seen pictures. I have only run into one poisonous snake in the woods here, and it was a water moccasin. I haven't yet run into any rattlesnakes, copperheads, or coral snakes. This was just a post to show Mona, since their venomous snakes are different where she's at.

eeeeeeee I hate snakes!

**It is poisonous. Avoid it.

however sometimes I think one snake bite is better than a 1000 venomous bites from some ppl that hurt us.

Charles, ironically, I nearly stepped on a large snake during a long hike on Saturday. I didn't even see it right in the middle of the path. But it was a constricter, a rat snake. Look how brave Laura is.

If you're interested you can see some amazing closes-up that I was able to get by clicking on appropriate thumbs here.

Dan,

Very nice pics. Such a beautiful area, all lush and green. I see you took them with a Canon PowerShot S2 IS, around 10:40 AM.

I don't believe that's a cricket for a minute. :/

Thanks for letting me take a look. I owe you some kindness.

Kindness? You owe me kindness?

I think you're just trying to make me forget about that $25 you owe me.
