Quartz – Speckled Rattlesnake Doing What Speckled Rattlesnakes Do

This particular color phase of speckled rattlesnake is difficult to find. It’s not just because of the remote location, deep sand, required permits, extremely inhospitable landscape, extreme temperatures, proximity to the border (and nonstop border patrol stops), and zero-humidity air – the things are nearly invisible.

One of two found this trip, and one of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken:
