Found this guy weaving his way through a chain link fence.

Course I had to get a little better look at the little guy.

And finally a view from where he was headed to. Liked the composition on this one. Did end up doing a little more post processing on this one to clean it up a bit. Wasn't quite as sharp as I would have liked. Also need to invest in flash for the camera, the built in doesn't quite get thing right.

Nice shots! Looks like Georgia is a great place to live if you are a herpetologist.

Plenty of snakes around, but as with all wildlife photography, it still boils down to being in the right place at the right time. Oh yeah and of course having your camera with you. I actually don't typically see all that many snakes. Maybe a couplea year. So this year, I have managed to be in the right place at the right time and luckily have had the camera with me.

Neat pictures! I've never seen a snake weave through a fence like that - what great luck you've had recently!

Since I got my DS I've seen more roes, mooses, kites, canadian geese and other wildlife than in years before. A couple of days ago I saw a fox, something I've only seen two or three times before in my life. Being a photo hobbyist gives you better eyesight!

I must agree withwhat robar said ... having the Pentax DL has reawakenedmy interest in looking more closely atmy surrounding environment. You don't have to be on a specific outing to find wonderful pictures. They are all around ... you just have to be alert and observant. I'm now in the habit of walking around our house with a coffee in the morning observing and looking for opportunities to appreciate nature. That alone is worth the investment in the camera.

Cheers, Mike
