    Almost got bit by a rattlesnake yesterday

    I was hiking down the trail and was within 100 yards from the car when I heard something buzzing in the bush next to my foot. I stopped then saw it, HOLY SH#T.



    I also shot a shaky video that I posted on Youtube

    Awesome! Not that you almost got bit, just an awesome snake. Nice pic too.
    Comically bad at DIY

    Cool video you had there, but real men would have shot it with their head strap camera mount.
    Those who expect disappointment are never disappointed.

    It's safe to say I would have crapped my pants. Great job on the video and even better you didn't get bit.
