Ted: Snake Eater

Folson froze, his emotions under control while around him the rainforest teemed with fear and death.

Target: less than a hundred yards away, slightly under cover.

Too far -- must get closer.

A brief, stray, thought of annoyance nagged his lizard brain as he wished his quarry could just make things easy once in a while. Two tours in Asia had taught him that the job never easy and the target never co-operated.

He raises his instrument. Good view now. Takes the shot.

Clickclickclickclick the motor drive activates and Folson has his cover shot for National Geographic:

The red-bellied snake eater.
