Snake Dude

This 5 foot, little guy invaded our Mothers day outing. He is what we call a Black Racer, and was moving at access of 10-15 mph. I used 500mm focal length to get in closer, the focusing, and framing were a slightly difficult task. But all came out pretty well.

Re: Snake Dude

Hi Steve -

They certainly cover ground quickly.

I note they will charge at people just to scare them. Well your pic scared me!

I must confess I don't like snakes.

Thanks for showing - my first Black Racer.

Regards. Barr1e

Re: Snake Dude

This one was only interested in getting away, as fast as possible. There were three little girls, and one old man with a camera chasing him. He ended up under some large boulders, while still being perused by the same.

Re: Snake Dude

Well done getting the shot Not much chance of getting scared by snakes here in the UK - we do have adders but they are quite rare although they are poisonous. Then there are grass snakes - which I believe are legless lizards.

Re: Snake Dude

Racers are constrictors, and not poisonous. Their diet is mostly of mice, and frogs. With their relative length to small heads, I don't see how they swallow a mouse or frog. Of course their jaw unhinges quite wide.
