  • location   Huachuca Mountains, Cochise (Arizona, US)

  • notes   This handsome snake started rattling before we even spotted it, a full 30 yards away. It adopted a classic striking pose for a while and then calmed down and buried its head beneath its coils, giving me the opportunity to set my tripod directly above the coiled snake for the close-up of its coiled body.
