Sistrurus miliarius barbouri, 23 March 2021

Sistrurus miliarius barbouri, the Dusky pigmy rattlesnake;
Volusia county, Florida (23 March 2021).

A mid-sized Dusky pigmy rattlesnake perched patiently in the tangles of Ormond Beach, Florida. As I frequently note, I find Duskies to be delightful to work with. They can be remarkably patient, cautious snakes and don’t have a drop of aggression against humans. This one simply remained perched, waiting to see if it need to flee or not. It did not. I snagged a couple of photographs and went on my way.
