Diamondback in a Tree

This is one of many seen last summer … many seen that night actually. Way back in a hard-to-get-to wash at about 2am, we watched this diamondback on the crawl head up into the low branches of a tree, and sit. I’m not sure if this was in response to our being there, but either way, it was some behavior that I don’t see much, especially with this species.

Crotalus atrox
