Now that's a long snake!

big long snake

I was this close??!!!
I do not use telephoto lenses.
I just found this photo of a PRETTY LONG snake I encountered in the Peruvian Amazon while working with Earthwatch performing wildlife surveys in Lago Preto.
He surprised me as I walked by; I stopped to take his photo.
I have just spent the last two minutes laughing out loud. Oh my god that thing is huge! And very very very close.
