Re: Some young gators from northeastern North Carolina

Pictures 1-3 are the same animal, the first one I saw. Picture 4 is alligator #2. It was larger than the others at about 4-5 feet. Picture 5 is gator #3. Picture 6 and 7 are gator #4. Picture 8 and 9 MAY be the same gator as #1. I found that one in the same canal a few hours later but several hundre...

Some young gators from northeastern North Carolina

Lots of young gators out yesterday. From Dare County, NC. Their numbers seem to be increasing. I talked to a wildlife officer who stated they are seeing more of them in the Chowan River all the way up to the Virginia border. https://i.imgur.com/MIJsdKi.jpg https://i.imgur.com/70pK2tp.jpg https://i.i...

orangish black (majority)

Virginia Copperhead

Found this guy sunning himself in the middle of a trail in a city park in southeastern Virginia. I wasn't even out looking, just taking my afternoon walk. I moved him off the trail as there were kids playing nearby. https://i.imgur.com/aWkT94T.jpg https://i.imgur.com/0aNmVyP.jpg https://i.imgur.com/...

A few Mojave Finds

Spent some time in and around Joshua Tree Nat'l Park and Amboy, Ca last week. I actually went to photograph the desert in bloom. On this day I only had an 18-55mm lens with me, not thinking I would want anything that didn't need a wide angle. But I came across a few chuckwallas and some other stuff....

Black/Yellow Rat Snake Intergrade?

Not sure what to make of fellow's parentage. Whatever it is, it produced one spectacular Pantherophis. Thoughts? From coastal NC.

Canebrake from the other day
