    I went out to do some work around the pool and took my Olympus c-750 with me
    thinking I would try and get some shots of the birds at the feeders.
    This little guy was in the solar cover, I think it is a grass snake
    even though the he has a darker color. I could be wrong on that. If
    I am somebody please correct me.
    He did not like the closeups however, he lunged at the camera
    several times, but my timing was off as usual. The best I could do
    was get him hissing at me.

    That first pic is pretty good.

    The snake was in a pissy mood because he is about to shed his skin. Snakes are usually quite aggressive during their pre-shed period.

    Good picture. The cropped picture is sooooooo much better. Quite an attitude for a little guy.
