Easternback rattlesnakes mating in backyard

A scary, yet amazing encounter of these two snakes mating in our backyard. To witness such an act was both rare and scary at same time! For half hour I watched them do this ritual of intertwining dance unlike anything I've ever seen and hope never to see again in my yard!
