Telephoto closeup of a pygmy rattler's head on a paver patio

The gator wasn't the first time we had an uninvited guest on the patio. From September 2021. In this instance, I just waited until it moved on. Wouldn't kill a human, but it can kill a small dog or incur several thousand dollars in vet bills.
