    Beautiful! I agree with ram947 ... heart pounding, adrenaline rush, but worth it if no actual contact occurs!
  • Maggie.Smith 3y

    Love that you captured this encounter. Beautiful image.

    whoa ! but what a pretty snake --looks like it's moving due to the pattern.
  • Cal French 3y

    Thanks, everyone. Some credit is due to Kota, our Jack Russel Terrier, who--contrary to form--discovered the rattler and then jumped away, keeping his distance.

    Great find and shot - just stand back!
  • Hannu Kuukkanen 3y

    Very beautiful creature and shot indeed.
    I've warned you to stay away from the reach of these but... :)

    As usual, thanks for sharing. I do not know if I am envious, or worried for you.
