whoa! I hope that was with a long lens!
I'm glad you didn't knock it on the head. I was brought up with parents, father in particular who thought the only good snake is a dead snake. I dont feel the same way even though the only snakes I have in my area are extremely venomous. I worry more about my dogs getting bitten than myself.

I was using my 300mm F4L IS but I was at the minimum focus distance of 4.5ft. They say they can strike up to 3/4 the length of their body and I estimated him at about 5ft long so that put the end of my lens just out of striking range and myself well out of range.

Yes I do live in a great location with all kinds of things right in my own back yard. Thanks.

Great shot here. Man, I miss Tucson!! For you to find this beauty in your driveway, you must be living way up in the foothills? I never encountered one of these while living in the Sunrise and Kolbe area. Lots of scorpions but not these...

Thanks, actually I'm an Eastsider. I live right on the border of Saguaro National Park so I get all kinds of things that come through my yard.

I don't live too far from that intersection, near Sabino Canyon and Sunrise. We get 2-3 diamondbacks a year that pay us a visit. They like to travel in the arroyos while they search for pack rats and mice.

I work at the big plant on the South side of town. One of my co-workers was bitten on the big toe about 6 weeks ago while he was taking his trash out to the dumpster after dark. He had on sandals. He was off work for a week, but made a good recovery with little permanent damage.
