Behind The Lens

Location
Elijah State Park in Georgia
Time
As I remember it was about 2:30 in the afternoon, I was surprised to see this guy jump off an RV as it passed the check-in station.
Lighting
Natural light, shading by trees.
Equipment
I grabbed the camera that I keep next to me in the car just for occasions as this, a Canon PowerShot SX30 IS. Did not take time to grab my Canon 5D Mark III that was packed up with all my other equipment in the back seat of my automobile.
Inspiration
Early Spring scouting areas with friends for photographing shoot(s). I saw this guy jump from the top of an RV as it was rounding the corner around the park check-in facility. My friends and I were heading to the main office at the time, I ran back to my car and grabbed the camera and ran towards him. I got his attention immediately and began to shoot. This image I was on the ground shooting directly at him. First snake of the year. My lady friends were petrified, but I knew he was harmless.
Editing
Usually, I do, but I liked the capture as it turned out
In my camera bag
5D Mark III, 20D Lenses - 50 1.4, 50 1.2, 85 prime, 100 macro, 75-105, 100-300, etc and some kit lenses. Flashes Lens Cleaning materials, etc Tripod setup with bonuses.
Feedback
Always be prepared and ready. Keep a camera by your side, you never know when you will be pleasantly surprised with the unexpected.
