This is a shot of a venomous copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix) camouflaged in the leaf litter along a hiking path. Can you spot it? I couldn't spot it. Of course I'm also complete shit at the Hidden Pictures on the back of Highlights magazines, so take that for what you will. I added a shot after the jump of the snake circled so you can find it but if you want a POTENTIAL SPOILER: It's directly in the middle of the photo. This is exactly why I don't like hiking. Well, that and the exercise aspect, but mostly this. Fine, the exercise mostly, but still, snakes are a good excuse to bail on a weekend hike with friends, especially if you lie and say you've been bitten in the past and almost died. Tell them you can't even believe THEY'RE willing to risk their lives on a hike. Really sell it, then suggest meeting for bottomless mimosa brunch instead.
Keep going for a shot of the snake circled in Geekologie pink.
Thanks to Tank, who keeps promising me a ride on the cannon but never delivers. Dammit, think about my bucket list for once.
