    Seen on my hike

    Love how the heron froze so you could get his picture. The copperhead snake, I would be shaking too much to get that shot!

    I've neve encountered a Copperhead before - instantly recognizable - looks like Hershey Kisses along his flank!

    I use in it tandem with my iOS Photos and back up every thing I take on my iPhone immediately to Google Photos on my iPhone. Open Google Photos and touch the Lens button and it will find out what you just snapped!

    Very nice photos. I have an Android app called "Picture This" that identifies plants.
