This shadow of a cougar attacking its prey cast by the Superstition Mountains in Arizona can be seen best for only 6 days of the year - 3 days in March and 3 days in September.

My family spotted this Western Rattlesnake at Smith Rock State Park. The tree he is under is on the trail next to the bridge that crosses the river where the picnic table is at. Always keep your eyes peeled! People were walking within 5’ of this guy having no idea he was there.

(Smith Rock an epic Rock formation Near Bend Or.)
