An Unexpected Meeting
Since there were clouds, and the possibility of weather, I took my DP2M on my run today.
I thought that I should have done this last week, to have a picture with 'power lines' for that recent thread...
It was peaceful (albeit windy) with nobody out there except me and the turkey buzzards:
I waited at this spot for 10 minutes for the distant vineyards to come into full sun. It didn't happen.
Then I came across this guy:
He must have been a baby - only about 24 inches long. But I've heard that babies are the worst - they haven't learned to hold back the venom, and give you a full load with the first bite. I stayed 2 feet away, but got lower so show his eye:
OK, I should have laid on the ground for a better angle. Yeah, right - laying down with a rattlesnake - how would I explain that to the paramedic?
