    Wonderful outing you had!

    I have never seen, or heard of the Storeria occipitomaculata, Redbelly snake. Beautiful snake. Question for you, how tough was it to capture the lovely critter in Pix #8, and was it slippery after getting in the water?
    Again, excellent addition to this thread.

    Excellent shots as always Lelle. I really like all the red on that Bufo americanus. Are they always that red?

    Thanks all

    Not allways that red but we seen quite alot with that red coloration
    Beautiful toads for sure with loads of character (as most toads)!
     
  12. Indeed, however why is it called 'Redsided' garter snake?

    They usually have red blotches on the sides such as this one:

    Do Rattlesnakes always give you chance to stop and smile at the camera? :)

    As you can see its a smaller rattler that arent that close to my foot, and they dont lounge out and bite. They usually are very reluctant to bite.
