OMG-I'll never freak about seeing a little bitty old copperhead. Impressive, and I'm glad it was in YOUR back yard and not mine!

Thanks marcelo and Angie. It was nice to have the 200mm already on the camera so I did not have to get close. The 3 and 4 footers are no problem, and are easy to chase away. But this was about 6 ft and you don't mess with those. He stayed in the pond until the next day, then left and fortunately has not been back. If he had not left I would have called for the trappers to get rid of it. Our pond is too small to put up with an aggressive gator. Too many small dogs in the subdivision.
