Now THAT’S a Rattlesnake

RattlesnakeThis handsome creature was curled up down by the mailboxes at the end of the road.  First one I’ve seen anywhere on my road or the immediate vicinity in all the years I’ve lived here.  Perhaps two feet long, and not at all concerned about the attention.  I confess the sighting gives me pause – I regularly garden barefoot at dusk – but I suppose it’s likely that rattlesnakes have been and will continue to be secretive companions in the garden.
