A few years ago, I wrote a piece about encountering two copperheads, among other animals, while hiking in Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
It turns out that I was wrong about that. At least two people made comments that the snakes that I saw were cottonmouths, not copperheads. They looked different than the cottonmouths that I saw elsewhere in the refuge, but one person in particular said that the snake I photographed had the classic defensive pose of a water moccasin.
So, thanks for the comments and the corrections. I stand corrected.
