Hey everybody. I'm back in town (again), so I figured I'd post up some finds I've made in the pines since I've been around (late april). If any of these look super similar to dragoncjo's . . . its most likely because we took the pictures at the exact same time. So - sorry for that.

Ambystoma opacum (marbled salamander)



Bufo fowleri (fowler's toad)


Rana clamitans melanota (green frog)


Rana virgatipes (carpenter frog)



Hyla versicolor (northern gray)


Of course the emerald of the pines, Hyla andersonii:



So about two years ago on a pbx hike, I suggested to Jeff (woodjin) that I take him to see some pine barrens treefrogs, since he'd never seen them previously. He seemed all for it, and I promised I'd remember to call him when the action began. Well . . . I didn't. So after however many years later (two or three maybe . . ) I finally remembered to call him up. Of course the photographic prowess I displayed is somewhat of an embarrassment, but I had a good time regardless. Thanks again for meeting up, Jeff!



The reptiles have been as easy to come by as the amphibians this year. Which is really weird.
Seen about 1000 so far - fence lizards:



Juvie Diamondback Terrapin


worm snake


s. ringneck


Racers seem even more abundant than usual . . . i honestly couldn't tell you how many I've seen this year so far.



I've really lucked out with this species, too . . . hopefully that keeps happening.




That's about it for my pine barrens finds. To echo Chris, I should have plenty more pics to come this year (i'm keeping my fingers crossed).

Thanks for looking.

-Bob
