Local photographer Jack Settle found this “pretty decent-sized western massasauga rattlesnake (Sistrurus catenatus tergeminus)” east of Bartlesville on Monday night. “In my experience, massasaugas have been very laid back,” Settle said. “This one, on the other hand, couldn’t stop ‘striking’ the air! We were nowhere near its strike zone, but it was doing a very good job at warning us not to get any closer.” JACK SETTLE
