Ugh. Sorry about the awful title. Having been away from the internet for a week now, I'm giddy with the flow of electrons, and am therefore not responsible for my blogging actions.
One of the fun things about being in the field is the constant brushes with critters that always happens. Nothin' like wrasslin' a bear to get the heart pumping! Anyway, I ran into a little rattler, hanging out on a cow path, and snapped a quick a picture. The little guy was just trying to get warm, and this big dumb geologist almost ran right over him.
The picture below is of a snake I ran into back in Montana, hanging out on a rippled sandstone. He was not to pleased to see me, and quickly hustled off to a hole in the ground to get away from the glare of the camera.
Any other neat pictures of critters in the field out there?
