It may at times appear that I seem to be exclusively fixated on amphibians and reptiles. While this may not be completely false, it is not altogether true. I do pay attention to, and photograph, many other types of organisms. Many of these are nice to look at, and are worth sharing with you.
Great-horned Owl (Bubo virginianus) in defensive posture just out of the nest.
Early instar katydid (family Tettigoniidae) on spiderwort (Tradescantia sp).
Southeastern Spinyleg (Dromogomphus armatus)
Just a hole in a tree?
Actually a great location for a Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor) nest.
White top Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia leucophylla) flower with crab spider (family Thomisidae) waiting to ambush any unsuspecting pollinators.
This Large-mouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides) and Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana) represent the unexpected things I happen upon while out herping at night.
This Barred Owl (Strix varia) seemed almost curious about us. It stayed near and watched us for about 20 minutes.
