Ken Smith level-classic 6/13/2011 4:03:20 AM

Very nice effects, Danny. I always associate rattlesnakes with western states. It would definitely be disconcerting to suprise one of them! #1384852

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-classic 6/13/2011 4:13:39 AM

This is a great old barn in spite of the snakes. A fave for me! #9457655

Sabrina Ryan level-classic 6/13/2011 4:15:07 AM

Then didn't finish the story. LOL #9457658

Danny B. Head level-classic 6/13/2011 4:47:59 AM

I killed the snake, then changed my pants. lol #9457796

Gina Cormier level-classic 6/13/2011 4:55:52 AM

Snakes???? Ummmmm.......nope...not me. Can't stand them......spiders...nope...hate them too. Gaotors.....nope....nope....scared to death of them too. Hmmmm....maybe I should just stay in my house!!

Gorgeous capture and the effects are stunning as always!!!! #9457832

Michelle Alton level-classic 6/13/2011 5:05:19 AM

This old barn sits in a valley very near to where I live. Although this looks very still and peaceful, this area of the valley is known for it population of rattlesnakes. As a boy I would make money hauling hay from fields in this area. Once, I picked up a bale only to have a rattler greet me from under the hay.
