You Can’t See Me

Check out the camo on this little guy. See him? About 10″ long and holding perfectly still, it’s hard not to skip right over them while walking through the woods without a lifetime of search image development.

    O.K., you are having WAY too much fun with those timber rattlers!

    But then, I had a great night tonight. One (mangled) Sidewinder, one Red Diamond (haven’t seen one of those in years!), and two Shovel Noses (MINE!!) So, here I go with the Shovel noses as captives.

    CooL! Do you have any photos of the shovelnose? I bet they look great from out that way.

    I’m pretty computer illiterate. I don’t know how to send pics, but I caught these north of Palm Desert. These are almost totally devoid of the red markings found on snakes from the Algodones Dunes and farther east into Arizona. One is only black and yellow, and the other has just a hint of red. Still real pretty, though. Maybe my son can teach me how to download pics and send them as email attachments.

    Excellent, I would love to see them. I have not seen one shovelnose all year! I did just find my first coral of the year though, last week.
