Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

Diamondback in the Headlights

Night time photography of road cruised diamondbacks is getting difficult to make interesting. I am always happy to see them of course, but how many hundreds of photos do I really need of diamondbacks sitting in roadside gravel in semi-defensive postures? The answer is, probably hundreds more. This one was at least a little interesting in that the headlights of my vehicle combined with the shallow depth of field kept the natural color of the animal much better than the usual flash trash. Maybe there’s something to this?
