    Here's a few from Paynes Prairie. This rattlesnake was a few feet from the parking lot on the paved trail. It had 11 rattles and was about 6' in length. The dappled sunlight made the thing almost invisible. I leaped out of my skin when I saw it. I was only a few feet from it. Needless to say I did not leave the paved trail that day!

    Here's a gator for your perusal.

    Here's a Great Egret in a stiff tail wind.

    I agree about the 2nd being my favorite. I think it'd be good in b&w.
    The first one seems a bit dark.
