Rhabdophis chrysargos (IMG_4318 copy)

I've always had this crazy idea of shooting a wild snake with an MP-E65 1X-5X macro lens. Today, i saw a small one, about 6-8inches. I was joking with a_manson if i should go ahead and shoot the snake. The next thing i knew, i already snapped two shots of the "almost cute" little snake. The snake got did I...oh and i screamed too LMAO..


Working distance at 1X is 4"

I am terrified of snakes LOL...but the little voices in my camera asks me to go ahead and do it. It has made me done so before and it's doing this again! But that time was with a Tamron SP90mm:
