This one was a pain. We have a lot of blacksnakes in and around the house, so I thought I'd take a picture of one. Needless to say, not a snake to be found this week. I thought I was going to be reduced to taking pictures of snake skins and snake poop, but then I remembered trying to get pictures of the dozens of turtles that bask on the logs in the pond at my school. Of course, they all dove in the minute I walked out with the camera, but this guy was a little slower or a little braver - not sure which.
