    The Nature Photography Thread

    I was going through my photo archives the other day and I started thinking that maybe it's about time that we had a nature photography thread. The pictures don't even have to be pictures of garters, the only rule (at the moment) is that the pictures you post are your own. Goes without saying, really. And it should at least have something to do with nature. Boots has already given his blessing.

    Just check you file and image sizes before submitting anything.


    I'll start with a few of my own.




    A one-eyed Rana temporaria I found last summer.




    A Vipera berus we found while we were learning to identify foreign coniferous trees at the Finnish Forest Research Institute's research area in Solböle last september. Started playing cobra when we came too close. It was lying in the middle of the road and refused to move, just raised its head and hissed, which is pretty unusual for this species.

    I have 38 pictures ready myself, so just throw in a couple at a time. They'll last longer that way.

    ....oh and by the way....I've got 181 herp pics and 164 invertebrate pics from the field......so that's why I limited the gallery to just snakes and just to certain pics of them...LOL.

    Very nice ones. What species are those first two?

    And those 38 are the just the ones I had time to crop and resize yesterday.

    African Ground Hornbill. Okay, I know it's a crap photo, but I followed this guy for hours to get even this close! African Ground Hornbills are big snake preditors in, well, Africa! By the way...the bit of blue in the tree above the Hornbill is an Abyssinian Roller. Two for the price of one!
