Oh. My. God. I love snakes, as you know from today's post. But THIS thing is scary. Please tell me this is not in your yard.
If you took these pictures, I sincerely hope you have some incredible zoom on your camera, and even then- NO!!!!! We have a lot of these as I'm surrounded by woods. I'm so scared of them.
This is one thing I hope my little boy DOESN'T like, makes my skin crawl LOL.
He's an incredibly sleek fellow who, I dare say, means what he says!
Oh my he is terrifying
Ummm, how did you get this close?
OMG what an incredible shot. I would have been in the other direction! Thanks for stopping by.
What a scary creature!
I'm with Robin! How did you get that close to a rattler? You did kill it, right?
I am dead scared of these.
This post leaves my body weak. The one thing I'm most afraid of.... snakes!! *shakes*But real good close up on the pictures :)
there is only one thing to say after that..ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Great shots though..Happy WW
Wow, awesome photos, but I hope they weren't taken here in Wisconsin!
I have a hard time looking at that - very scary looking.
That pic gives me the creeps! We had a rattler in my garage last year and I found one under some bricks on the side of my house a couple of years ago. They scare me to pieces!Menu Maker Momhttp://menumakermom.blogspot.com
YIKES! I would not want that any where close to me. I was once bit by a boa constrictor, so I have a HUGE fear of snakes. *shiver* Happy WW: http://tinyurl.com/5os522
I'm terrified of snakes, but I did manage to get a picture of a squirrel having it out with a rattlesnake at the Grand Canyon. They're somewhere on my blog! Thanks for visiting my blog.
Ewww, I'd hate to meet this one, but the pictures are great!
Wonderful work. Enjoyed your other flower and wildlife photos, also.
I don't think I can publish what my first reaction was to these shots. Jeez. What absolutely awesome photos! Incredible.
Two WORDS for the W W ---- OH sh!t!!!!then, Hi Lisa! Thanks for stopping by my W W too. But I'm wondering...you have Missouri in the "Labels"...was this snake found in Missouri? My daughter lives in MO!! Now, I'm gonna have nightmares of my grandsons finding something like this in their many trips, fishing!!!! rofl
i hate snakes!!Hope you can check out mine.http://www.yourvmodel.com/2008/07/wordless-wednesday-no9-10-faces-of-me.htmlHappy WW!
"DON'T TOUCH! Run for the hills! I am .......ARghhhhhhh!
And um yeah, Lisa, please tell me you have an extremely large long monster of a lens!
Very cool shots of the rattlesnake. I like snakes, too, but I stay away from these guys!
I am not terrified of snakes but this one and a few others are not one snake that I imagine cross paths with on the trail. Like other commenters - sure hope you have an aawwwful good zooooooom lens!
What a sweet babi Timber Rattler. You should talk to the DNR and National Geographic and stuff. No, really, you should. These are like my dream shots (besides a shot of Midleton of course) ! I'm so jealous, yet thrilled right now. I think I'll have to knock the bull semen guy off the Ched of the Week list and put you up.Hoorah for you!
I'm with Haddon, I like snakes, but I stay striking distance away from rattlers. I think that's a good policy.
Eek!When I was about five I was walking with my (about eight years older) cousins in the woods. Suddenly the boy cousin swooped me up and pretty much ran me several hundred yards away. I had no idea what was going on...but found out later that I had almost stepped on a Michigan Rattler! Oops..Thanks for visiting my blog!
Amazing shots! Wow! Let's hope an extreme zoom was used here!!I stepped in a rattler coil as a child... a truly terrifying experience.
OMG! Beautiful! I want one too!!
That one's been to the taxidermist, hasn't it?
ooookkkkkkkkkk........!You are just kidding.....right?!Great shots, but hey, can I have the birdies back?;)Happy WW!
Boy those fangs looked scary.
Geeeez, I'm only brave enough to look at these things behind a pexi-glass wall at the zoo! You actually took these photos??? Wow....
Uuuuuummmmm, nothankyouverymuch.(Awesome photos though)
With friends like these who needs enemies! Awesome photos to be enjoyed from afar!
Great shot! But that snake wouldn't be my son's friend. eewHappy WW!
Oh jeez!!! I hope that you have a great camera and you weren't really THAT close to that thing!!!
These pictures are just wicked cool!!!That,and they give me the heebeegeebees!!!!
Good Lord, I hope you used a szoom to et these shots. Yikes.
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way! I'm freaked out now! Thanks L! lol
Oh my goodness, is he ever scary! Beautiful photos. Here, and throughout the rest of your blog. Happy WW!
I can just see you setting up your tripod and zooming in as Mr. Rattler drips his venom, just for you. You'll do anything to get the shot!
OOOHH my gosh!!! hear me scream!!! please tell me you didn't take that!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How nice of you....your visits.Thank you.This critter runs free where I came from.I had one wrapped around my 3 yr olds tricycle tires.....that was my first up close encounter.I must say I DON"T ever want to come across another. That was in New Mexico years ago and the memory is still way to fresh.Can't type much, leaning my neck over is still painful but wanted to say Hello and catch up.Love TJ
Yikes...I hope its his friend from a distance......Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)
OMG, I hate snakes!!! YIKES. Thanks for dropping by.
this is really scary... i jus tposted an email regarding snakebite in my post.. beware!!!!!!!! my ww! is up too..
Oh my Lord...don't get to close!
u sure this is your son's new pal? woah! scarry pal, huh!
OMG...these shots are amazing...scarey but exciting too!
Scary! Dog better.
Ok. Am I the only one who realizes it's a stuffed snake???? Lisa, I know you would never get that close to a rattlesnake with venom dripping fangs! Geesh!!!
Cool photos. The rattle has thread on it so I was thinking it looks sewn on. I must say, SwampAngel65 had a funny comment. It is true, you would keep your distance from a real snake.
wow..pretty impressive...how did you get these shots??
