Figure its time I share some of this year's finds. The focus in 2012 has really been on birds, but there's been plenty else going on as well. This first round of pictures were taken March to early May.

New Jersey chorus frog


Young northern black racer


Pine warbler


Yellow-throated warbler


Common yellowthroat


Prairie warbler


Black and white warbler



Yellow warbler


Pine barrens treefrog


I'll leave it here for now . . . periodically I'll add more of this year's photographs as time allows me.

Hey thanks everybody! Bird photography really isn't my thing, but I've been giving it a shot this year because of a nerdy bird bet I'm involved in. I'll post more pictures to the thread soon.

Okay round 2 . . .

Female diamondback terrapin nesting at her own risk . . .



probably worth revisiting . . . I saw an older version of one of these pups this week. Coyote sightings seem to increase exponentially at this site from year to year.

however ill advised, animals keep crossing roads . . .

I love those photos. My 9 y.o. son drags me out to the PB every Spring to look for amphibians. We have not been as fortunate as you.

If you are not seriously editing them, your photo's have been consistantly in my mind right up there with the best we see on this site.

I try to keep away from much editing with these types of shots. At most some cropping or minor adjustments to get closer to what the animals look like in real life. Ultimately the goal is to edit less and less as time goes by. You can't post-process a good photograph into a great one.
