Moonrise Over Mason Valley

I managed to get a shot of the super moon last night before it got too dark!

Night Heron

I was lucky enough to see this Night Heron this morning on the way to work! It looked kind of funny: a big bird sitting on a little tree, and it stayed still while I took its picture and drove away.

Kicked Out

This Great Basin Rattlesnake was just looking for a nice, shady place to rest during the day when it made its way into the shop at Fort Churchill State Historic Park. We kept hearing a weird noise in the shop, and we thought it was our seasonal in there doing some work--he had been using the air compressor, so I thought that's what it was.

With a little coaxing, it made its way out the door, and was then re-located to a shady area, outside where it belongs!
