Wandering around to look at things off trail, it is very important to pay attention where you walk.
The lighting in the above photo on a cool overcast morning in the open space is perfect, not a lot of visual clues except some out of place dark object in the weeds. The photo doesn’t reflect the process of trying to figure out what it was, then what kind it was as the light bands were deceptive until I noticed the rattles.
So lets enjoy the great outdoors and pay attention!

As you say: Look at the photo carefully and watch out for rattlesnakes! /Gary
