Softy Crossing - Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest

Tin Man look-alike

Okay, I was experimenting here...This is a yellow rat snake at Okaloacoochee Slough
taken with my Nikkor 200 mm "Micro" with a Nikon D3100 body.
I bellied down to eye level with the snake from a distance of about 3-4 feet.
Scroll down for second part of this experiment.

Here, I shot the same snake with my Nikkor 80-400 with a Nikon D40x body.
This lens requires that I be at least 7.5 feet away, so that's about
the distance I was. Got a favorite between the two?
