Notes

I have been wanting to photograph a southern black racer since moving to VA, but these guys are just too fast and flighty. Walking along the forest road at Dismal Swamp SP, we came across this adult foraging in a hole, so we "set up shop" with the camera. When the snake popped up, we were part of the scenery, and opportunity knocked.
