Rat Snake Picture
We see these from time to time on the property where we live - but there are far more copperheads.
The following photo was taken by Tom using a zoom camera at a distance.
At the time, the Sony H2 was popular - and one of the inexpensive cameras on the market. I have just about worn this camera out - and while it was $350 at its debut, they can be obtained for as little as $25 these days in used condition.
I would encourage anyone to purchase one; they are fantastic as an on-the-go camera and because they are so cheap now, they can be left in the car without worry.
They take fabulous macros and the results are even more fabulous when a close-up lens is used.
I've shot many a bird photo using this camera with a Teleconverter (TC) adapter but these days I prefer the Panasonic FZ150, which I would also highly recommend.
On that note, this is the image of the rat snake. At this time, he lived in our pasture and we'd see him frequently - so much so that we named him Ralph. Picture of Copperhead
