Default I've got you in my eye . . .

I found this Black Racer sunning itself on a fence post. If you look closely you can see my wife and I reflected in it's eye.

Nice shot. They never let me get close enough, unless I capture the snake and have a friend hold it while I photograph it. That's cheating I know. You and the wife reflected in the snake's eye is very cool.

Good reflection. Looks like you're both taking pictures. Yes/No??

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Robert - It's not cheating until you get caught

JJ- Thanks for looking

Bob -Yes we are both taking pictures. It's nice having a spouse that understands

Wow cool, how close were you able to get? Racer are really quick snakes, aren't they?

Saly - This was a very chilly morning. We could have picked the 5-6 foot long fellow up without any problem. But we figured it best just to let him do his thing.
