    Spot on. Thank God for the "zoom" feature on a camera! Did the snake end up eating the chipmunk?

    The chipmunk was barely breathing when I walked up on the pair. The snake was very relaxed, so I watched for about 5 minutes to see what would happen. The chipmunk was still alive then, I needed to be on my way and I had passed a little girl hiking with her dad not too long before then, so before I left I moved the pair well off to the side of the trail. Didn't want him to become agitated as she passed by.

    Awesome picture!

    Hmm so the snake was just waiting for the venom to do its job on the chipmunk?

    Great photo, at first look the snake resembles a Copperhead instead of a Rattler. Regardless, I bet what type of snake it was did not matter to the Chipmunk (aka trail snack)
