Day 5

On today's walked I struck out in a different direction across the desert.
Meet Mr. Lucky.
The baby rattlesnake was curled up against that curved twig behind him just sunning himself until I came along.  Look how close I stepped to him.  A foot closer and I'd have squashed him!
Naturally he decided to move once I set up to take his picture.  So cute!

I'm with Sandi. Baby snake or no baby snake.
