Diamondback, Big Bend National Park

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

I carry snake tongs when I travel to Big Bend National Park to move snakes from the warm roadways in the mornings so they won’t be run over. I came across this diamondback near Panther Junction. He went on the defensive as soon as I exited my truck. I didn’t want to pass up the photo op and photographed him with a Canon EOS 5D111 and a Canon 100-400 5.6L lens. I then moved him into the underbrush about 30 feet from the roadway.
