Many nature photographers head to Florida to photograph birds because they are abundant, cooperative, and colorful. Some head down to shoot landscape images of the great wilderness areas. Probably more than a few go just to eat Key Lime Pine. Others go for the snakes.
Below is one of the Snakes I saw on this trip, a Brown Water Snake. This stocky serpent has a head shape that looks a bit look a dangerous viper, but there is no venom to be found in this species.
