A Pair of Sidewinders

In late April and early May, I can’t even say how many times I’ve found a sidewinder while another snake is mid-capture. This one was a little different in that they were right on top of eachother. I’m unable to sight-sex this species, so I can’t say whether it was mating behavior or just coincidental sharing of a warm spot in the side-road gravel, but 2 snakes at once is definitely a cool find.
