Hey all:
Dad and I went out today figuring its going to be one of the last times we can go out down low here.
It was rather warm today.
Got skunked. :(
And....almost got bit!
We were on our way out in the truck and I saw a wash I wanted to look at.
So, me gets out and starts walking up it looking around....all of a sudden BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Jumped back and there he was...all coiled up buzzing.
Go figure...I never see a snake when I have my chaps on ....and run into them when I dont!
It was huge...must have been about 10 feet long! Well, it seemed that way.
Just glad he warned me :)

Yep, I came up on one this afternoon, but only saw him ... Something perked my cautious bone up and I pulled off my headphone to listen ... As I concentrated on hearing, I saw JoeNoShoulders right in front of me all coiled under a prickly pear stand ... He didn't buzz and I just chatted with him a bit, took the best photo I could then went on back to a new patch I'd just found ... Here's his photo ...
