My first for iNat! Also my 100th Herp species for VA this year! Beautiful black morph male was found ~10 feet from where we parked the car. After a couple photos of him he noticed we were on to him, and he maneuvered into the typical threat posture. Definitely my favorite VA snake!

Wood Duck (top, left third) in Cypress and Spanish Moss; Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, Georgia. The original photo wasn't very sharp, so I rendered it as more of a watercolor feel in post-processing. I couldn't bring myself to delete it as it seems to capture the beauty and mystery of a cypress swamp.

Cannot figure out what it was eating - I'd forwarded this to several biologists too and the consensus was that it was some unknown sea monster basically..any help would be appreciated!

Photo 1:
More Faces Than I Expected
Yesterday morning I stepped outside before sunrise and saw movement. Turned on a porch light & saw this. I'd been wanting to see this for years. She had 2 babies on her back with a 3rd climbing on. The mama froze as I ran back inside and scrambled to get my camera assembled. I was very lucky, she was still standing frozen when I got back. So dark I had to use flash. I was about 10 feet from her.
Photo 2:
There Is Always One
After my first shot, I stood still & mama finally relaxed and turned sideways. That is when I saw there were 4 babies, not 3. Number 4 was struggling to find a handhold on the other side from it's siblings. Every big family has that one kid that marches to a different drummer.
Photo 3:
Mom Checks Me Out Again
When my flash went off for my 2nd shot, it got mom's attention again. With 3 little sets of eyes also looking my way. Number 4 was still trying to hang on and facing the wrong direction.
Photo 4:
Mom Decides I'm No Threat
Mama ignored me and the camera flashes and wandered around the deck sniffing and exploring for a minute or so. Baby # 4 finally seemed secure. Babies stay in mom's pouch until they are about 2 1/2 months old when they emerge and climb on her back. They stay with her until they are about 4 to 5 months old.

This Prairie Rattlesnake was crossing the dirt road that is 10 feet north of the Texas and Oklahoma border. @upupamartin and I stopped to observe the snake which barely moved for 5 minutes as we took photos. It was about 3 feet long. As we were getting ready to leave I thought I'd take a snake hook and move it off the road to keep it from being run over by the next rancher to come along. As I touched it with the stick, the snake's entire attitude changed instantly as it coiled into a defensive posture and starting rattling. We took a few more images, then I moved it to the south side of the road into the vegetation where we took a few more shots, then left it to continue our drive.
