Week 27 by Becky

Water Moccasin (aka Cottonmouth)

McKee Gardens is definitely a photographer's paradise. There was so much to photograph and the cafe's food was absolutely mouthwatering. It was hard to choose what to submit this week. Flowers, dragonflies, snakes, OH MY! I encountered two water moccasins next to the pond where I was about lay down to get a closer look at some water flowers when I happened to notice them. Which for me is pretty good because I am usually not observant of my surroundings when I am focusing on my next shot. The other snake disappeared as I was focusing on them. I so enjoy our No Wimpy Girls outings.


  1. Wow, you got a really good shot of him! I'm glad that's as close you two got though ;-). It was a fun day!

  2. Ack! Nice photo of the beast with fangs!! He has his eye on you! Like the composition with the leaves and grass. You are so brave! Glad you didn't lie down next to them!

  3. Snakes....Got to love them....but from a far distance. Nice capture Becky!!
