Rattler on the Road

I lived in Montana for almost thirteen years and never encountered a rattlesnake. Now, I live in Florida and am just visiting Montana and I find my first rattler.  It is a Prairie Rattlesnake, the only venoumous snake of all ten species of snakes in the state. If given a large enough dose, the venom can be lethal to an adult human. Fortunately for me, I was safely stowed in my car with Maggie, so was able to photograph him without having to make him feel threatened, which enabled me more photos.
