Tucson geocaching adventures : rattlesnake!

Tucson geocaching adventures : rattlesnake!

Tammy_B and I went geocaching late at night earlier this year (April 2nd). We spotted a rattlesnake crossing the dirt road in front of us. Yes, we were in the car.

Well, of course, I slapped a 300mm telephoto lens on and jumped out of the car to take his photo. Even with the car lights, the first few pics were blurry, too much hand movement because it was so dark. So I used a flash.

The bright light pissed him off and he turned and hissed at me! Good thing he wasn’t close. 50 feet? Thank goodness for telephotos.

We waited for him to cross because of course the geocache was on the other side of him. Found it!

Something made me remember this tonight. Some caches you don’t forget.

You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon like I did today with “coyote”. I set the category to “apparel” expecting to see coyote t-shirts but surprisingly there is tactical clothing in desert colors — khaki and military green. On another day, the results may be different. Search engines intrigue me.


I am the designer/creator of the t-shirt Amazon pays me a royalty if you buy the shirt. Yay! I am also an Amazon affiliate on the US site. This has no effect on your price.
