Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, SC
I was driving around the wildlife loop and saw a snake up ahead crossing the road. I got out of my truck to take a closer look and realized it was a Cottonmouth. I grabbed my camera and got down on the ground on my belly and got this shot as it got into its defensive position.
