I had a relaxing and quiet hike to the top of Mt. Onechi last Sunday. It was early morning and the skies were just beginning to brighten. Mist had covered everything with dew, and had softened the bird song that was filtering through the forest. But on this day, they proved to be rather elusive. Here are a few images from that foggy morning.
This is a poisonous mamushi, similar to the copperhead in North America. It was sunning itself at the trailhead and paid me no mind. Trust me, I was using a zoom lens on the last shot!
