19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

While a herping expedition we saw this individual of Micrurus clarki crossing the road. With the help of my friend Roman Wili we managed to capture it for a few hours while it calmed down and let us do a fast photo shooting before releasing it at the same spot.
