Please, allow me ...

... to escort you off the premises.

This is our second Diamondback (rattlesnake) this year. How's that for perfect camouflage? He was sleeping, or digesting, next to one of the garden paths and Emma walked right by. Squirrels were playing just yards away. All curled up in a cool drainage depression, he was reluctantly moved to a less human-inhabited piece of desert.

You know, I kinda like my little ribbon garter and the occasional black snake, but that one gives me the heebee jeebies - long handled thing or not! But you do have to admire the camoflage!
