At least you had the right Lens so you could keep your distance from them

Thanks for commenting. I don't use a macro lens for sure.😊 Most of these water snakes are non poisonous, but I keep my distance and a 400mm lens helps.

Thanks for your comments. Rattlesnakes are a different story. I have photographed water moccasins before, but didn't like to be around them. Keeping a distance is advisable. There are probably people in your area who know where to find rattlesnakes.

Great series, Mike - even though the pics give me the "willys" (in a good way ). Fun photos.

Thanks Jer. I like the ones with all the ripples and bubbles in the flowing water.

If I picture these snakes as plastic snakes in plastic water--the whorls, ripples, and bubbles help--then I can almost appreciate your snakes!
But, assuming that these are real snakes, then I can assume that these are indeed good pictures of such.
Good posts! (At least for most of the folks.)
Glad you're enjoying your hobby--and enjoying sharing it with us.
Angky.

Thanks Angky. The water action around the snakes was my main reason for taking those photos. Fortunately, most of the snakes that I take pictures of are water snakes and I don't get too close. If I happen upon a poisonous snake, I may take pictures if it can be done without much risk. Photography is a great hobby with many subjects. Thanks for viewing and your comments. I always enjoy reading them. Mike
