This picture is absolutley amazing! I have never seen a rattle snake up close! I think it's really cool how you got the snake's rattle in the picture too.
It is cool how you got the shot with the snacks tung out. How far were you when you took the picture.
I love catching little garter snakes, but I would never touch this one. It's amazing how strong they are to lift up the whole front half of their body.
How did you get the picture up close and not scaring the snake away? I really like how you can really see the dimonds on the back.
AWSOME photo. My favorite thing about this photo is how his tongue is so long. I woder how he got so close to the snake?
Wow, did you get bit after taking the photo? It must have been scary taking the picture. AMAZING picture!!
This is a COOL picture. I like the way the snake is in a pose for the picture. Also the snake looks like a model.
Nice capture, and with the tongue out! Great timing!
Wow, I'm usually not into wildlife photography but I must admit this is a terrific portrait! Well done!
@Scott Brown most likely "Crotalus atrox"
