I'm Feelin' Lucky!!

I ran across this little beauty in my driveway!!
This is an Eastern Massagua Rattle snake.
If you look it up it is rather rare to see one.
This one is a baby-so that means there is a mom, dad and a few bothers and sisters
around here somewhere!!!!!
As you can see this one is in a striking position- would not scare for no love or money and waited for us to leave the area.
Can't wait till next spring when I start weeding my flowerbeds!!!!

Yikes! I hope that snake was just passing through. We only have garters around here but that's enough for me. I am not a fan!

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
