I had to share this one as these encounters are fairly rare.

I hope you get to see one too! I mean it is nice to see a video, but to see one in the wild is extra special to me. Plus, he hung around long enough for my wife and a neighbor to see his too, total bonus for them!!!

I was pedaling my bike along the Julian Wash bike path today and spotted a 3' long western diamondback rattler crossing the path. I was about 15' away when I snapped this photo, but I didn't aim well and missed the head. Smartphone cameras sometimes have their limitations when the sun is bright from behind.
