Hunting Banded Rock Rattlesnake

This is a spot to go see banded rocks at such regularity that it’s an absolute disappointment to find fewer than 2 in the 20 minutes or so it takes to hunt the place. Most of the individuals here – I’ve seen a few times, and know where they’ll be. This female has been hanging around these rocks for years, and is easy to spot hunting Yarrow’s spiny lizards in the morning. I didn’t get any closer than this and risk disturbing her hunt.
