Snakes are critters I have been interested in since childhood, but have seldom photographed. Between January and June, 2000, and again in 2002, I was entered in the Valley Land Fund Wildlife Photo Contest, so my partner Larry Ditto and I were forced out of our "bird comfort zone" and into the realm of lizards, spiders, snakes, butterflies, frogs, beetles, etc. This got me started back into some snake photography. I will be adding more photos here as time permits. Thanks.
