We just now got back from a sleepless Milky Way session in the Eastern Sierras. Here's a self portrait from last night. I'm a huge advocate of none composite Milky Way photos, so as always, this is a single exposure taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and a Rokinin 14mm 2.8 aboard a @skywatcherusa StarAdventurer. Holding this position for 54 seconds with wind and a flashlight was the hardest part! The best part of the night was running into a group of photographers near the Mobius Arch. Talking, exchanging ideas, turning lights on while someone is open, and yelling at strangers in the dark while collaborating to get the shot is a blast. They all captured some angle of this self portrait. Can't wait to see them! It's great how the passion for an art can bring folks together. Check the tags for the galleries of my new friends btw. I didn't get everyone's IG, so if we met last night send me a message! Now... It's time to take a nap!

Like many other snake species, Milksnakes (Lampropeltis triangulum) sometimes react to threats by hiding their heads beneath their bodies. This behavior is sometimes combined with tail vibration, possibly to distract potential predators from more vital regions (like the head!), giving the snake a chance to escape.
