A week ago today was my birthday and Diane hosted a surprise party for me at a local restaurant, and that was fun!
The next day we left for 5 days with our RV and friends to camp in the mountains north of Wickenburg, Arizona.
We saw this Diamondback Rattlesnake on the trail while riding our ATV, but he was not very happy to see us. They can be anywhere from 3 to 7 feet long, are very defensive, will stand their ground, are lightening fast and their bite can kill you! This bad boy is ready to strike, but I'm not as close to him as it looks because that's what a zoom lens is for! (Click the photo for larger view.)
