Field Herping in Hampton Roads
 
4 Attachment(s)
Took some time Thursday to wander some local parks and try out my new camera. From just a few hours of hiking, I found or sported:
1 eastern kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula)
1 eastern cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus piscivorus)
1 northern watersnake (Nerodia sipedon sipedon)
2 red-eared sliders (Trachemys scripta elegans).

Love this new camera. I wouldn't have most of these pics without it.

Nice pics!

What camera are you using?

Donald C 05-05-2017 04:19 PM

A Nikon Coolpix L340 (in-expensive but good quality pics for a young college student)

Yeah, it's pretty amazing how inexpensive cameras these days can actually get you some great shots with no effort at all. :thumbsup:

Great pictures and thank you for posting!

The first turtle (first two pics) looks like a mud/musk turtle, but I can't be more specific than that. The high domed shell and head shape are the giveaways.

The second turtle (second two pics) is definitely a painted turtle.

I obviously need to brush up on my turtle knowledge. Local snakes, I know by heart (mostly). Turtles and the like...not so much.

Thanks for the correction.:D
