"A very pretty atrox it is... Is the rest of the body that greyish color??? Or does it just look different because I'm not used to looking at them that close?"

It is more of a tannish-brown than a grey. I posted a link to some more pictures of that snake under my reply to WW. Within the same population where this atrox is from there are snakes that are fairly grey.

"I love photographing snakes... I usually hold my camera with my fingers actually as much behind the body as possible... I've had snakes actually hit the lens and the body of the camera an more than on occasion... Just a little too close for my liking LoL"

That would be WAY too close for my liking. I'll get pretty close, certainly within striking distance, but will usually back off and settle for a lesser pic if I think the snake is going to react by striking. I've become pretty good at reading the snakes but there is always the one that does the unexpected which helps to prevent complacency. I, too, love photographing snakes and want to make sure I have the fingers I need to operate the camera. LOL
