+1

I tried to give some posing directions ... didn't seem to do much good though.

BTW .. I kept REAL GOOD eye contact on this one.

Just remember the viewer does not care about the excuses of the photographer.

The head up position gives separation from the background but I might think about removing the stick on the lower left.

And snakes cares about neither ... this is one case where the viewer is last on my list of concern ... I'll defer to the snake, thank you very much.

Might be different if I could tell them apart better. I'm not well versed at identifying the real deal from the posers in general, but even less so @ juveniles. And, my understanding is that juveniles don't know how to control venom release, so they can dump a bunch of venom and be as dangerous (or more) than adults if you have the misfortune of being bit by a juvenile.

Here's a different angle with maybe a bit more eye contact, but I didn't get the kind of separation as in the OP ... preference

My guess (and I emphasize guess) is a juvenile Cottonmouth (or Copperhead).

The kind you keep a safe distance from, and use your 400mm tele on

Head separates better from the background in the first.

Yup ... except I was only packing a 28-135.

Not coiled, I figure the threshold for "safe" distance is 3X body length. Coiled ... a country mile is still too close.
