Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

Tiger and Lichen

This shot of a baby tiger rattlesnake ended up much more colorful than I had anticipated, with the typical pink coloration of the snake to match the surrounding rock and neon lichen. This is one of only a handful of tiger rattlesnakes I’ve seen in this area, and the only snake of the morning on the way home from a 9 day field trip. I drove home after this, content with the last of hundreds of snakes seen on this one.
