Riverwalker's Pics - Texas Rattler

Many times the creatures in nature can be present and you may not see them. They are masters of the art of camouflage and blend in with their surroundings quite well. As seen in the above picture, this Texas rattler is well hidden by his surroundings and could be hard to see if you aren't being observant of your surroundings. You could find yourself in a life-threatening situation very quickly if you fail to pay attention to your environment.

Staying above the water line!

Buzzworms - brrr! I hate the sight of them things, give me the willies. Gotta keep your eyes peeled when walking about, though I know they just want to be left alone.

Most usually they won't be a problem unless you grab one by mistake or happen to step on it.

Just need to be careful and keep a sharp eye out for them...they can be difficult to spot at times.

Thanks anon.

This was a pretty nasty fellow and usually they're coiled up and ready to strike by the time you notice them.

I go to a lot of trouble to try and get some unique pictures of wildlife and I would recommend you be very, very careful when taking pictures...especially of poisonous snakes.

Glad you enjoy the posts.

Thanks Mike.
