That's a great photo. The diamonds give away what you're looking at, and give it a place. When you first look at the image, you kind of glance to the right, to see where the head is! Rattlers have those keels on their scales that always make me think the snake looks beaded, like Indian bead work.

Wow, nice shot! It almost made me dizzy when I first looked at it.
