Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

Speckled Rattlesnake

Here’s my second-ever Speckled Rattlesnake (Crotalus mitchellii) I’ve ever found. The somewhat surreal look to the pictures is due to a compositing technique known as HDR, which are becoming quite popular these days. Fortunately for me, a goo 90% of the HDR pictures out there are of old barns or graphiti, so at least I’m doing something unique.

  1. What does HDR mean?

  2. Bryan says:

    HDR = High Dynamic Range. It’s multiple exposures combined to make a sort of ‘superexposure’ with a broader range of values.
