I was very close to this guy before we saw him. He was next to a pond full of alligators so I was not watching. I think I took two minutes to start breathing again. Looks like a rattle snake but has the round eyes versus the slant eyes of the poisonous ones. He was sunning himself and we parted ways without incident.
Every time I saw this picture I kept thinking it seemed surreal and the birds looked like they were actually drawn. So I changed up the sky a little in colour and texture to make it look like the drawing it seemed to want to be.
