Ridge Nosed Rattlesnake, My First

Here’s a picture from an early August morning with my first instance of this snake, the Ridge-Nosed Rattlesnake (Crotalus willardi). We found a few more that month, but there’s never a snake like your first. This picture just feels like someone slept in the driver’s seat of their car in the middle of nowhere to get it. Well, it does to me anyway.
