Rosie the Rattler – Leslie Yoder

“Shortly after moving to Lawson Valley, Jamul in 2009, I spotted a very colorful and dead lizard next to my house. I went back inside to get my camera, and when I came out, the lizard was gone. On looking around, I found this scene behind my house: A southwestern speckled rattlesnake swallowing the lizard whole. I’ve been a rattlesnake fan ever since.” – Leslie Yoder.
