The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh is the oldest and largest museum in North Carolina. With almost 1.2 million visitors annually, it's the state's most popular museum destination. And for good reason! The Museum has an excellent collection of 700 - 800 fish, amphibians and reptiles on exhibit.

Christopher Maine, last week's SideKick360 winner, took the opportunity presented by a recent visit to create his winning image:

"I took this photo while I was at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science in Raleigh. My girlfriend and I were walking through the exhibits, taking pictures with our cameras and I came upon an exhibit with snakes in trees. At first, my girlfriend was trying to get a similar picture with her Nikon P520, but the glare from the glass made it hard for her, so I took my Nikon D3200 out and was able to shield the light just enough to get the picture."  - Christopher
