The eye colour is rather unusual from the normal. Nice shot.

While I hate snakes this is a wonderful image. I have never seen a snake with scales, very interesting.

Gorgeous reptile, can even see the keeled scales. Caught about six species of rattlers when living in CA., only one of these. The Red Rattler was the prettiest I think. Only killed one to try fried up, the rest were moved off the roads for their safety or just let them be if off road.
