This snake was large and fearless, it allowed me to get very close (no need to zoom) and instead of turning away shifted to look directly at me, awesome. I wanted to pick it up but it did not want to leave its sunny patch so i decided to respect its space hahahah.
A male seen feeding at the flowers in my front yard for a matter of seconds before my presence scared him off. Didn't return after over an hour of waiting.
One of my favorite species of lizards on one of my favorite trails.
My dad and i found this fox in the river above the waterfall on Chaney trail a couple years back. I buried it to allow it to skeletonize and recently dug it back up. I have the whole skeleton and am thinking of reconstructing it.
This was one of the most ballsy lizards i have ever encountered in the wild, it displayed its brightest colors, bobbed at my girl friend and I and then ran straight in-between the our legs, it could have ran in any other direction but chose to establish his territory and fearlessness, awesome hahaha.
