Banded rock rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus klauberi) from extreme west TX.
I'll never forget the circumstances surrounding this animal; so fortunate to have just stumbled across this little dude. And we were in for quite a pleasant surprise shortly after this photo was taken!

A large and bulky mottled rock rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus lepidus)
Was reminded of one of my favorite shots from Junction yesterday -- there's a long story behind this rock rattlesnake portrait, but let's just say it was a fun reward at the end of an adventure. Taken on @nature_org land at Independence Creek Preserve.
Hands down one of the most beautiful snakes I have ever stumbled upon; and he appeared just in time! Big Pimpin' here buzzed me when we least expected it, and I couldn't have asked for more. Thanks for showing yourself, and thank you for a killer weekend to the boys!!!
