I Stand Corrected!

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.
