I haven't posted in a while, but I've certainly been around. 2011 has been a good year to me so far . . . here are a few things:

Fence Lizard


you don't see this all too often . . .


Carpenter frog


The ever-famous rough green snake


Adorable baby bunny


Pine Snake eating (a different) adorable baby bunny


Less-than-native Yellow Pitcher Plants growing wild


One day I'll get this shot in a huge pitch pine . . .


Northern gray treefrog before and after:
Before.


After.


And of course I could never exclude the pine barrens favorite . . .





More to come later in the year I'm sure . . . Hope you enjoyed.

Great photo's! I love seeing green snakes, and it is nice to see the Pitcher plant growing well. I know of 2 locations and one is barely hanging on it appears. The other is doing quite well.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Guy -I think there are more sites out there than any one person knows. As for this one, its doing well. The plant in question is not the largest of several large healthy plants in a small area. Of course its filthy with the usual natives as well.
They were flowering at the time . . .


Joe - thanks - because of my job I'm fortunate enough to see this behavior (as well as some other less-frequent pine snake tendencies) a few times a year. Admittedly, the circumstances aren't always conducive to photos I'd care to share with anyone. To me amphibians are underrated in general; they may be less complex behaviorally than other groups, but stunning physiological adaptations more than make up for it in my book.
