I guess I was a little too close for this guy's comfort. The feeling was definitely mutual (but look how awesome this photo is!).
This photo definitely looks like it was staged. I promise it wasn't. There's a huge snake these guys are looking at.
My friend startled a snake right as it struck a Richardson's Ground Squirrel (Spermophilus richardsonii). Here's the poor little bugger after it died. I stuck around to watch the snake eat it.
