      Crolatus atrox photos

      So in the past few weeks the rattle snakes have started to come out of hiding.

      I have captured a few of them with two purposes in mind.
      Take them WAY out into the middle of the desert, in order to, photograph, release, and well, photograph.
      Much less likely to be senselessly murdered way out there.

      I've captured photographed and released Two so far.

      Though I strongly advise not getting this close to a rattle snake.

      They Are highly venomous and could potentially kill you.
      So, Lets just assume that I am a professional, and that I know what I'm doing.


      Well, That being said...
      Here are some of the closest Macro Photos of a Rattle Snake You Have ever seen!
      And some of the best photographs I've ever taken in my life, so far.
      These were Photographed using a 50mm with 1:1 Macro Converter!!

      Approximately 4 inches of working room, And no barrier! This produces the best results.
      This guy is nearly 2 feet long, and I am WELL WITHIN his strike range! But the results are clear.

      I'm So close you can see my reflection in his eye!!

      Needless to say, My Adrenaline was pumping.







      After our photo session, some product placement lol.

      Wow. Awesome, but scary. I am ever fascinated by snakes, but have a healthy respect for venomous ones.

      Awesome photos.

      You know what they say gregery, "It's not if you get bitten. It's when." I'm just sayin'.

      Thanks everyone...

      Jim.. lol... yeah.. I hear that..

      After interacting with them though, much like Tarantulas, I do believe they are incredibly misunderstood.

      But I do still have that healthy respect for them, as well! Always Extremely careful, I pay lots of attention to posture and behavior etc.
      I learned quite a bit when I inadvertently, and unofficially volunteered at the Local Pet Shop, lol.

      Courage for me, was merely a result of knowledge.
