Cool find! Lucky you, and great capture! Maybe he's the reason I dont see too many ground squirrels around there.

And you stayed long enough to take a picture? Wow, I'm impressed.

Scary thing. Snakes scare me a lot.

I love this photo!

Wow Herb... what a surprise. Makes for an excellent shot. And, of course, this is where you must have really appreciated your long lens although you didn't take full advantage of it.

katwilkens07-Aug-2004 14:46
Yikes! It looks huge. You can almost hear the rattle.
Guest 07-Aug-2004 14:35
What a brave person you are to stick around long enough to take this shot!! :)
Gary Blanchette07-Aug-2004 14:21
Wow Herbert! You are quite the adventure person.
Guest 07-Aug-2004 14:20

Guest 07-Aug-2004 14:19
What a great shot! You managed to get the entire package, shadows and all. Well done.
Melanie07-Aug-2004 14:17
Very kewl!!!
That's the best snake pict I have seen on here in a while.
I assume it moved away? Or, did you have to go around?
