I have never seen a rattler in the wild, I bet it would give you a start.
Love the image of the mushrooms,quite a find, and hubby did a great job capturing the rattler.

Thanks Dominick, Gord, Carolyn, Claudia, Becky and Joy. LOL @ Carolyn. I must say it did have me shaken in my shoes. Don't like to think about the what ifs with this close call. We were quite aways up in the woods with no phone.

One thing about this snake he will usually let you know you are too close and he is unhappy about it.

That is tender loving care. I love the way the one is snuggled against the bigger one and the way the hood of the bigger one forms like a protective umbrella over the little one. Fantastic find, photographed with outstanding colors and textures.
Have a wonderful day my friend.

No lenses are long enough to me to capture a snake. I am terrified of them.

And you lived to tell the tale. I like the size differential in the subject. It looks like a youngster leading on a parent. The background texture frames the light tones of the focal point beautifully.

Perfect title, Tammy...and great capture!
Wow...that snake is SCARY and huge!!! We also live in the woods and they are around (rattlers), but so far I have only seen a copperhead...yikes...I wouldn't even garden until my husband went though the weeds with a long stick each time...and that was after 2 years!! :)
