Also known as a water moccasin, this cottonmouth snake is venomous and, as you can see, blends in amazingly well with its surroundings. Yikes! I was a healthy distance away, safe and sound on the boardwalk at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary when I snapped this pic. I never would've seen it, except a sanctuary volunteer led us to it. Next post...the predator that arrived nearby and some thought it was eyeing this snake for dinner. Enjoy the day!
