Hi, guys. I'm a noob to this forum, but I've got some field herping photos that I thought some of you might enjoy. I've only been seriously field herping for a few years now, although I've been informally herping for more than twenty. This year, I actually started taking photos of my finds, rather than let my brother handle the documentation process. I mainly photograph crotes, but I've got some other snakes that I'll toss in, as well. I'll start with the most common snake that I encounter, the Western Diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox). I see mohaves (Crotalus scutulatus scutulatus) pretty often, as well. I only photographed one, this year, because he was found in a location where they were thought to have been extirpated. My first crote of the year was a new subspecies for me. I'm used to cercobombus, so finding the Colorado desert subspecies was a pleasant surprise. Crotalus cerastes latereropens My favorite crote has to be the Arizona black. Crotalus cerberus Tigers come in a close second. Crotalus tigris Saw some nice specks this year, too. Crotalus mitchelli pyrrhus Of course, when you're out looking for cerbs, specks, and tigers, some of these guys are just bound to pop up. Crotalus molossus molossus This year I went down to the Sky Islands, to look for some of the montanes. We found all three species that can be found there. The only subspecies that we missed was the New Mexico Ridgenose rattlesnake (Crotalus willardi obscurus.) We did, however, find the Arizona subspecies. Crotalus willardi willardi We managed to find some Twin-spotted rattlesnakes, too. Crotalus pricei pricei My favorite, though, by far, was the Banded Rock rattlesnake. Crotalus lepidus klauberi That's it for my crotes. I saw C. ruber, this year, but I completely forgot to snap some photos. Oh well. The other photos make up for the loss, and I can get some photos next spring, anyway. Just to add some color, I'll toss in some of the prettier colubrids I've seen this year. Arizona Mountain kingsnake (Lampropeltis pyromelana) California kingsnake (Lampropeltis getula californiae) Regal Ringneck snake (Diadophis punctatus regalis) Sonoran gophersnake (Pituophis catenifer affinis) Sonoran lyresnake (Trimorphodon lambda) Boidae was there, as well. Desert Rosy boa (Lichanura trivigata gracia) As was Elapidae. Arizona coralsnake (Micruroides euryxanthus) And, since everyone seems to like gilas, I'll post my favorite one from this year. Banded Gila monster (Heloderma suspectum cinctum) I think that's enough herps for now. Just to give you a feel for where I herp, (and because I love landscape photography.lol) I'll toss in some shots of the habitat that I've searched, this year. That ought to do, for now. Happy herping, guys. Thanks for looking.
