We went back out on our ATV yesterday… and found our first rattlesnakes! Scary! Fortunately we were on the ATV already… not walking although we had been walking only moments earlier. I was ready to flee the area, but Carl stopped to let me take pictures.
This was taken with my brand new SX50 HS with a great telephoto lens. I processed the photos by reducing the yellow in Aperture and then painting the yellow back in on the snakes so that they can be seen, otherwise they are very will camouflaged by nature.
