Photo 99 - 365 Copperhead

This was an easy subject since it wasn't moving. I had to take advantage of it looking straight out of the glass. Wouldn't want to be this close to it in the wild!

You may ask why I don't have more fish photos since I was at an Aquarium. Well, Aquarium photography is tricky. The light is low and the subjects move quickly. You need a large opening in your camera lens and a fast enough shutter speed that will eliminate the blur but let in enough light. This was the first time I used my new camera and I wasn't familiar with the menu in order to change my settings so I did what I could, thankfully there was more to photograph than just fish! I do have some fish photos, just have not posted them yet. :)
