Watch Your Step

I returned yesterday from my annual trip to Florida to participate in the Gainesville Christmas Bird Count, where I photographed this handsome Florida Cottonmouth on La Chua Trail at Paynes Prairie State Park. It was on this trail that I stepped on one of these snakes three years ago. Thankfully it was a cold day and that snake was very sluggish. Temps were in the 70's when I took this photo, so luckily my footsteps yesterday were not as carelessly placed.
