Make My Day

Ok, this isn't the best shot technically... I know this.
My shutter speed was too slow to stop his strike without motion blur,
but I had to post this shot in response to everyone who thought the
snake in my last photo was dead... mmmmm, not quite yet!

In case you're wondering, I screamed bloody murder when I realized
that he was this feisty, but... well, I did have the camera in my hands
after all!
