Ah yes, the feared Cottonmouth AKA Water Moccasin!
I had the opportunity to photograph a Water Moccasin down by the creek earlier. Since their main defense mechanisms are flattening their bodies and gaping with their mouths wide open revealing the light-pink inside (where they get the name Cottonmouth from) it was rather easy to photography it.
Here is a close up of the gaping mouth. I wonder how many frogs have slid down that hole. Anyway, despite the fact that they are a venomous pit viper, they still are a beautiful creature and I really enjoyed photographing this one earlier. Enjoy the photos!
