It’s heating up in the desert which makes for some active evening critters. I live on the fringe of Tucson in an area that is still mostly desert so I have frequent encounters with things I prefer not be in my yard – mostly because I have kids.
I like most reptiles so I like finding the occasional gopher snake or gila monster and escorting them home. Rattlesnakes are another story and fortunately I have only had to relocate two of them in the almost 11 years I have lived here.
Oddly enough I haven’t come across a singe reptile in my yard since I started coming up with creative uses for my ex-wife’s wedding dress last year. I think they are aware that I possess the largest most versatile snake sack of all time. So this is sort of a “what if” dress application. I demonstrate how to pull this one off with a fierce stunt cobra.
Here are also a few random shots of things I find in my yard along with a picture of my buddy Noah’s foot. This picture reminds me to be careful when walking around outside at night. This is what an adult diamondback rattler can do to you. I believe they gave him 44 doses of anti-venom.
This isn’t the first snake I have seen in my ex-wife’s wedding dress (. . . . I did a previous shoot with a rubber one)
