3. I used to see rattlers regularly when I worked on a California ranch, and I'll say that
I never confused them with flowers

I had a "live and let live" attitude, except for slaughtering for meat, so I didn't kill rattlers I saw. I also figured the snakes kept down the gopher population, and the gophers were a gigantic nuisance, boring holes in irrigation ditch banks that would cause failures requiring major repairs

Maybe I should have killed rattlers: one of the ranch-hand's kids was bitten once.
