Re: Experimenting with the flash

That is kind of an interesting look with the finite edges to the light in the field of view. It would be better if the snake had been in some more "natural" habitat rather than on the road, but it is a good proof of concept. Gorgeous ratsnake. I agree. Second picture is a beaut! Love the cropping. ...

Re: Post your 1 best photo from 2015!

I'm new to herping and herp photography. But this was one of the first dozen or so shots I took with my new setup earlier this year. It's not spectacular but I'm proud of it.

Re: South Carolina in spring

Collecting in the FMNF is illegal without a valid permit (which is hard to get nowadays). I photograph there all the time though! No need for a permit as long as they go free. There's some really cool stuff in there! Feel free to PM me if you wanted to meet up.

Re: Keeping Texas Horned Lizards (Phrynosoma cornutum)

He's doing much better today. So far since I've been home I haven't seen him "climbing" at all, and he ate 2 more crickets! I'll check the bulb's box for info, but it's pretty strong.
Still waiting on the powder to come in though.

Thanks all. He has a very strong UVA+UVB bulb about 8-10 inches above the tank right now. If it continues to be a problem I'll figure out a way to lower it down to 6 inches. He's eaten the crickets very readily, I just put the 3-4 smallest crickets I have available in there (they have very weak jaws...

Re: Queen snake advice?

In my experience, they like very quick, rocky rivers with some slower pools in them with pretty brushy sides. I often see them basking above the rivers in branches on cooler days, and on hotter days in the water. Also, look for crawfish in the water! Crawfish are the main prey of Queens in my experi...

Hello! I am a long-time lurker, first time poster, and new herper. I live in Charleston, South Carolina, and am really interested in snakes. Yesterday I went herping and found a lifer for me: Red-bellied Watersnake!!! No pictures, though, it was fast and angry.
