Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

The first blacktail of 2012

Oh man, I’m way behind! I have so many photos to get through from 2011 I have no hope of getting them on here anytime soon, and it looks like my ‘pre-cooked’ posts have run out. Until I get some sit down time, this first blacktailed rattlesnake of my 2012 season will have to make due. A young female, large but still growing, she never rattled one bit despite my deserving it.

    Can we send photos for identification. I found a big snake today.

    Beautiful shot. Was this a daytime find?

    Thanks! I actually found her late the night before, and held onto her for some shots in the early morning sunlight.
