In Light and Shadow

Hiking along park trails, it's wise to watch where you put your feet.

Motionless on the trail ahead, a young rattlesnake - the smallest we'd ever seen.

Note its size compared to the hair band in front of it.
Beautiful eyes, skin color, scale pattern.
Its tiny rattle so clean, it resembled plastic.
Even tiny rattlesnakes can lunge, strike, and recoil faster than the eye can see.
We left it basking in the late afternoon sun.
Another reminder. While on park trails, always watch where you put your feet.
