I must have stepped over this guy while I was looking up into some trees along the field road while I was trying to photograph some birds.
When I turned around to start back the way I had come there he was about 10ft away between me and my truck.
He had his mouth open the whole time I was shooting.

I stand corrected! I guess that's why I don't do reptiles. I do know it scared me almost to death! Thanks for the correction though.
I corrected my original post for those that may be seaching for Cottonmouth reference photos.

I suspect its a pregnant female and cottonmouths will display their mouths as a warning. She was just chilling, warming up the babies inside. they are ovoviviparous., live birth.
