    Reptile watchin'

    My amateur birding walks have morphed into combined birding-herping walks as of late, and wouldn't you know it, they're now twice as fun! I've been fairly lucky getting photos so far, so I figured I'd share some for all the field herpers around here. Here are a few recent sightings. Enjoy!

    Northern water snake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon)







    Eastern garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis)





    Black rat snake (Elaphe obsoleta obsoleta)





    Bonus non-herp! Ghost crab (Ocypode quadrata)

    Re: Reptile watchin'

    Thanks y'all! I'm glad others enjoy the photos as much as I do.

    I'm based in New Jersey, though I do get around a fair bit. Herping in New Jersey can be a bit different compared to other places in the US due to our strict herping laws that resulted from historic and ongoing poaching. If you're found hooking or handling a wild herp and you're not permitted for and actively doing work/research that requires you to do so, you're liable to wind up in Big Trouble. We love our native herps here and we don't want to see them hurting again. Coincidentally, this means that New Jersey herping actually looks a lot like birding -- just sit back, watch the animal do what it does, maybe snap a few photos, and let them go about their day without you messing with them. It's actually quite refreshing when you think about it that way. Leave only footprints, take only pictures.

    Love the Nighthawk! Iím surprised it let you get that close before flying off.
