Timber Rattlesnake

My reputation as a snake lover/wrangler has spread through a lot of my wife's friends. One of them called last weekend and asked if I wanted to come get this timber rattlesnake before they killed it. Of course, I did.

I find these somewhat commonly in the wild and photograph them. They're one of my favorite snake species in the world.

Crotalus horridus

...the old ones ... knew in their bones... that death exists, that all life kills to eat, that all lives end, that energy goes on. They knew that humans are participants, not spectators. -- Stephen Bodio, On the Edge of the Wild
