rattlesnake

Reeve 60631, originally uploaded by otisarchives2.

Following a text-message discussion about snakes, I spent a while looking at pictures and x-rays of their skeletons online. Conclusion: I like snakes metaphorically, mythologically, biblically, and skeletally. In flesh and movement they are frightening.

I do tend to think that everything looks delicate and poetic in x-rays. But snakes especially.
