Gord MacEachern level-deluxe 9/27/2011 3:22:34 AM

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. #9698901

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe 9/27/2011 3:42:35 AM

Great shrooms..not so great snakes! Yikes, I bet you had to change your underwear! LOL #9698942

Claudia Kuhn level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:25:16 AM

Great forest find with the mushrooms... scary about the rattler! #9699121

R. J. Laudenbacher level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:34:45 AM

Wonderful details on the mushrooms, Tammy. OMG...with the snake. If you didn't have to change your unders like Carolyn says...it is amazing. Gives me the willies just thinking about it! #9699161

Joy Rector level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:45:21 AM

beautiful shot #9699201

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:51:25 AM

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. #9699229

Gina Cormier level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:57:33 AM

I shot some of these this past weekend. Excellent detail and image Tammy! #9699251

Robert R. Goodman level-deluxe 9/27/2011 5:17:37 AM

Hi Tammy,I can say for a fact that is something we don't see in the desert.Beautiful capture my friend!!!! #9699285

Douglas Perry level-deluxe 9/27/2011 5:21:22 AM

One thing about this snake he will usually let you know you are too close and he is unhappy about it. #9699293

Lynn M. Whitt level-deluxe 9/27/2011 6:43:01 AM

beautiful capture, scary snake.... #9699660

frank w. degenhardt level-deluxe 9/27/2011 6:46:20 AM

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. #9699678

Sabrina Ryan level-deluxe 9/27/2011 6:48:00 AM

Wonderful 'Shroom shot, Tammy! Yowsa to the Snake! How Scary!! #9699687

Monnie Ryan level-deluxe 9/27/2011 7:36:19 AM

Yikes! I like snakes, but I sure wouldn't want to run across a guy like this in the wild! Love the 'shroom capture, though! #9699916

Renata Gusciora level-deluxe 9/27/2011 7:36:37 AM

Alan L. Borror 9/27/2011 9:01:50 AM

Like that perspective. Glad your encounter turned out ok. #9700466

Susan Weisensel 9/27/2011 10:48:00 AM

Way to find the sweetness in mushrooms, and yikes on the snake, it would have scared the you know what out of me too. #9700500

Mike Clime 9/27/2011 10:50:39 AM

Cool capture and like how the little one is sheltered, Tammy! I would still be running if I was that close to the snake. #9700504

Patrick Rouzes level-deluxe 9/27/2011 12:17:50 PM

Marijana Fajgl level-deluxe 9/27/2011 1:26:43 PM

Fantastic capture, Tammy, wonderful composition.
No lenses are long enough to me to capture a snake. I am terrified of them. #9700794

John Connolly level-deluxe 9/27/2011 1:46:42 PM

What a wonderful mushroom image this is Tammy! I think it was good of the rattler to let you know you were invading his space! #9700840

Anita Hogue 9/27/2011 2:03:00 PM

So tender and beautiful, Tammy! I love all your mushroom shots! #9700888

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe 9/27/2011 4:22:54 PM

Thanks so much Guys. #9701191

Tammy Espino level-deluxe 9/27/2011 5:05:01 PM

Super captures!! I would of ran!! I know widows and scorpions,rattlers, and all kinds of creepy critters are in the desert, but thank goodness I never have seen any and really hope I never do!! I don't like to think about them..lol #9701297

Heather Loewenhardt level-deluxe 9/27/2011 7:47:28 PM

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. #9701603

Terry Cervi level-deluxe 9/27/2011 7:48:55 PM

Whoa! That was a close one, Tammy! Good thing you saw it in time. Nice shot of the mushrooms and your hubby got a good one of that rattler! #9701606

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe 9/28/2011 3:05:34 AM

Thanks Tammy, Heather and Terry. #9702213

Randy D. Dinkins level-deluxe 9/28/2011 3:19:51 AM

Patti Coblentz level-deluxe 9/28/2011 5:51:53 PM

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!! :) #9703880

Tammy M. Anderson level-deluxe 9/28/2011 6:01:47 PM

Thanks Randy and Patti. #9703911
