Description

It is rare when you have too long of a lens, this Western Diamondback was about 5 foot long, i think.

I organized a weekend at a photography ranch for some friends this weekend. It was very good, except it rained a couple of times, so the activity was a bit slow. I did see a number of interesting things, but my main focus was on birds.
