The Past Few Months

Post by Jeremy's Dad » July 3rd, 2015, 8:00 pm

Hey everybody,
A few months ago Nicholas sold me his old Finepix S1500 camera, I had never really had a camera up until then, so I was pretty exited. I have been teaching myself how to use it, and I thought I'd show you guys what I have recently found

I remember that garter snake, it seemed bigger in person. The alligator lizard is a San Diego Alligator Lizard
(Elgaria multicarinata webbii) I like the first shot of the norpac the best :thumb:

Great photos Jeremy and it looks like you got a little schooling on it from the expert you got it from. I think I need a lesson from him to even come close.
That SC Garter is just massive.

Thank for posting these.
