Always wanted to photograph a snake in the wild. He was pretty calm so I managed to get really close. His head actually touched my lens hood when I was desperately trying to focus. It was like 6:30 in the evening so not much light and this thing was sitting inside a hole, so I had my friend hold a torch so I could focus.
