Day 260 - Don't Tread on Me
The hubs and I actually almost did tread on this guy as we were out hiking today. He was right in the middle of the trail and we almost didn't see him. As soon as we spotted him though we both whipped out our cameras. I took probably about 20 shots of him. These were my faves.
Why the title? According to Wikipedia, "The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the snake is the legend "DONT TREAD ON ME." The flag was designed by and is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag. It was the first flag ever carried into battle by the United States Marine Corps, during the American Revolution."
