Cottonmouth 9 Revisited

This work, and others in the series, was created from a photo that I took in our gardens at Tanglewild Gardens. It was early season and the snake was likely looking for a place to lay eggs and it was crossing our driveway. I decided to take a few photos of it and use one of them as the basis of a series and this is one of the resulting works.

For those of you not familiar with Cottonmouths, Agkistrodon piscivorus is a venomous snake, a species of pit viper in the subfamily Crotalinae of the family Viperidae. The species is endemic to the southeastern United States. As an adult, it is large and capable of delivering a painful and potentially fatal bite. This excerpt thanks to Wikipedia.
