Senryu : rattlesnake

jumped out, took his pic
rattlesnake crossing the road
got mad, hissed at me!

I think he just ate because he was bulging a bit in the middle.

The flash put a funny black line under him.  I took one without the flash, just the light from the car but he’s fuzzy in this one.  Boy, did he hate the flash!  Don’t blame him as it’s pretty late at night and must have startled him.

I’ll probably go back and fix the flash ones — they are too light but wanted to get these up before midnight so they are straight from my camera.

First time I’ve seen a rattlesnake outside a zoo.  Scarey but cool. I am sooo happy I brought along my telephoto lens.  Tammy said you see all kinds of things geocaching.
