The Trinity River is now in a pretty high flood stage, and that is really exciting for a nature photographer.
Why? Because weird stuff happens when it floods. Water is where it usually is not, and animals will do anything to stay dry. That adds up to a lot of photo opportunities, like this image I shot this morning of a copperhead snake basking on a dry spot on a flooded trail.
He was pretty docile, and let me get right up next to him with my wide angle lens so I could show some of the surrounding trail and forest covered with floodwater.
