Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Diamondback rattlesnake, Catalina State Park, Arizona

Swift and deadly, the diamondback rattlesnake is a masterpiece of natural evolution. Only the rhythm of its tail, banded by black and white stripes, distinguishes it from harmless relatives.  An even more masterful development of natural behavior?  That I didn’t soil my pants in the backward crash to escape its angry rattle.  (Catalina State Park, Arizona, USA).
