Close encounters

I should start off this post by saying that these pictures are courtesy of Maria Matthews, my mom, who took them on a walk at Harvey Bear while I was at work. With that said…that’s a Diamondback rattlesnake! My mom didn’t realize it until she’d ended her photoshoot with the rattler when he gave her a short warning with his rattle to give him some space. Pretty crazy! For whoever’s reading, make sure you know that if you see a snake with a triangle-shaped head in the US, that’s a rattler and you need to be extra careful!
