Re: Basiliscus Family Values

Thanks for all your comments, it was sure a fun experience. The southern Sonora area is a wonderful spot to visit, it is a shame that things have deteriorated so much safety wise there. I do not recommend it as place to visit these days. There seemed to be quite a bit of interest in the Procinura a...

Re: Basiliscus Family Values

Thanks to Rich for filling in some of what is going on in the background versus DNA of these Rattlesnakes. And David, always good to hear from you. Got to get back out there to Oz for some more fun time. Hope the family is doing great! Van, thanks for the thoughts on the Procinura. It is an interes...

Basiliscus Family Values

I was looking at some pictures from Mexico to help a friend with a book on Mexican Reptiles and Amphibians. It was fun to review some of our trips down there and how many interesting herps and experiences we encountered. One particular event from 2008 was especially noteworthy, and in fact I was su...

Re: Yellowstone And the Colorado Prairie

Thanks Schell, Josh, Josh and Robert. I do love the lens, it is a beaut but it is heavy. I have not tried to take it on a plane yet, have to see how that works. Josh from Albuquerque, I am always open to id help. Sometimes I do misidentify or get sloppy and make a quick assumption. In this case, how...

Yellowstone And the Colorado Prairie

Somehow in my wanderings I had never visited Yellowstone Park. It is a place I had always wanted to go to, it had just not worked out. So we planned a trip there with my son and his family. It was really a family journey but I was pretty sure that if I took my cameras I would have some opportunitie...

Re: Spring and Summer Wildlife

Thanks to you all for your comments. And thanks to Reptilist for his Id as it might be exactly right. I spent some time with Google and it sure looks like Kukulcania arizonica. I have a couple of other feelers out and hopefully you are right and it will fall into place. Here is another view, Young ...

Spring and Summer Wildlife

This will be my first post in a while. Last year was a tough one for me and I stayed very close to home. So far on the wildlife side it has been pretty positive New Year! I have taken a few trips, joining up with my son Matt and others on a spring trip to the Carolina’s, Georgia, and Florida. Lots ...

Re: Don't Sleep- There Are Snakes (MAJOR DUW) PART TWO!

Hey Marisa, great post. Thanks for sharing. You certainly covered a lot of territory. It was nice meeting up with you and Chris in tucson. It is a shame that the weather was so dry and cool. The collared lizards are actually C. collaris not nebrius. The next range to the west has nebrius but we are ...

Re: Wildlife in the Neighborhood Part 2

Thanks to all for your comments. Hans, I use a Canon5D Mark II with a 100-400 zoom lens (Canon L series) and the very sharp Canon 100 Macro. I shoot in raw, almost always in manual and usually with flash for fill. For the long lens, I use the Canon with the flash attached on camera and for the macr...

Wildlife in the Neighborhood Part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post (Wildlife in my Neighborhood) I am fortunate to have a couple of canyons into my local mountain range that are still very good spots to see wildlife. The terrain is a bit higher than where I live on the bajada, and rockier. There are quite a few animals that are m...

Wildlife In My Neighborhood

This has been such a strange year. In January I had a wonderful trip to the Amazon with Dick Bartlett, Lorrie Smith, my son Matt, and others, all organized by Margarita Tours. It was great fun and I helped with the other participants to put up posts so that you could get a flavor of such a trip. I ...
