Well spring has sprung here in NW Florida. I can tell because I saw this fellow about 100 yds from my house. I put him in a trashcan and moved him off so we can all be safe.

A beautiful critter, but not in the yard.

Taste like CHIKIN!

Yes, but I might too.

And I do have a long lens.

I have to agree with Festus. I just can't take the chance with all the dogs around. I don't believe the are smart enough to leave the snakes alone. I have killed one that was within 3 feet of the kennel runs! So far I have been lucky and only found a few each year. They have all been small, around a foot long. Nope, I am not a good host to rattlers when they are on my property, near my dogs. I will however, stop my truck and wait for one to get across a dirt road, if I see one while out driving.

Great Photo!

Thanks. After I moved him, I took a ton of pics. Got some really good ones.

I don't see many diamondbacks any more. I may average one per year. I skin roadkills, but I don't kill them myself. Everyone else here does though.

I don't think we have too many diamondbacks, but we have PLENTY of pygmy rattlers and cottonmouths.
