Even though this was one of my target species for the Mojave, I literally stepped over this snake while it was basking on the trail. It rattled a few times then hid under some nearby brush.

Thank you to @robberfly for alerting me to this beetle's existence. He and @danielled83 also spotted them. I believe she spotted the second beetle pictured here. They are absolute speed demons so I got lucky with a few OK shots.

So cool to have seen them!
