Close encounters of the fangy kind
While standing in chest deep water in the middle of a stream, one of these ever so friendly creatures happened by. He was less than amused to find me in his way. I was less than amused to find myself in his way, especially since the only way I could rectify that was to back up, into the deeper water. So I got a quick lesson in how to tread water while your waders are filling up and your heart rate is up to about 280.
I love my job.
Everyone will be pleased to know that both the snake and myself made it through the encounter unharmed. And trust me, I was WAY more scared of him than he was of me.
