I know of folks who almost lost their feet and hands because of these little venomous creatures---I would hate to be bitten by one--but I've come close to rattlesnakes in woods--TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT--YIKES!!!!

Artist Reply: Yeah, I don't want to get really close to either one. I'll just take the shots & run...

Artist Reply: Yeah, there was a time when I wouldn't have gotten within 10 feet of him; now I'm trying to get closer. Go figure..... Thanks for stopping by!

Artist Reply: Thanks; glad you like it! I live in the country so I see way more of these than I'd like to!

Fascinating picture. You do have a lucky hand (or eye) with your wonderful photos of the nature.
