Each month, Arizona Highways’ editors write captions to accompany the photographs we use in our stories. It can be a tricky task, so we thought we’d turn the tables.
When we post a new photo here each month, you’ll have a chance to write its caption. Write a good one, and you might earn an autographed copy of Editor Robert Stieve’s book, Arizona Highways Hiking Guide: 52 of Arizona’s Best Day Hikes for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
This month, get inspired by Kat Hula Parks’ image of coiled up Mojave rattlesnake then post your caption in the comments section below.
Here’s a sample caption:
Primarily nocturnal, the Mohave rattlesnake will occasionally make an appearance in the very early morning or at dusk — if the temperature is moderate enough. Of course, if you happen to stumble upon one, consider keeping your distance… Mohave rattlesnakes are venomous.
Your deadline: January 15. Remember, when it comes to a great caption, every word counts.
