 Mojave Desert - Mojave Green Rattlesnake

Another shot from a recent trip to the Mojave Desert outside Barstow California. A Mojave Green Rattlesnake and he is not happy having been spotted out in the open. Their camouflaged patterning blends almost perfectly with the desert sand and dark green and tan shades of the Creosote bushes.

On the scale of snakes you never want to be bitten by, the Mojave Green is about off the chart. Their venom is a highly potent neurotoxin. Even wearing snake chaps while hiking, I found myself looking before almost every step. Although it appears I’m right in this guys wheelhouse, its really an 80-400mm lens racked pretty much all the way out that produced the perspective. I had no interest in getting any closer.
