I wasn't sure if this was the right forum to post this, so many of the pictures here are scenes clearly depicting places with people and few wildlife shots. I decided to put it here because a prominent part of the image is my finger.
Those who know me well will tell you that the most amazing thing about this image comes from knowing of my life long, intense fear of snakes and the realization that that is me holding the little monster. I found this hungry little guy in my pool skimmer this spring and decided to immortalize him on digital film. This is how he chose to repay me.
Great composition. You must be wearing a glove because I would have never guessed that was your finger he was biting. Based on the milky color of his eye this snake was about to shed his skin. The eye color turns milky just before they shed and at this point they can't see very well. When this happens they get fairly aggressive and, probably as a defense, will bite almost anything that moves.
