I have not noticed a reptile and amphibian photo thread, so here goes.....

I'll start with a juvenile Copperhead (viper) from north-central Texas (5D iv, 100mm L, F16, 1/125. 100 ISO) 184731

People posted their reptile pics in the Miscelaneous Wildlife thread. But a separate thread could be convenient. Great snakes and turtles!

For this kind of picture, I'd need at least shutter speed of 1/8000 PLUS a 20 EV IS or IBIS, to eradicate my panic-induced shaking.:eek:
Well done, Mike!

Blotched (aka Plain-belly) Water Snake (Nerodia erythrogaster) from north-central Texas. I don't know which of us had the most mosquitoes!

A North American Racer (Coluber constrictor) from North-central Texas. This one doesn't really fit neatly into any of the named subspecies; it is basically an intergrade between a Southern Black Racer and a Yellow Belly Racer. (5D iv, 100mmL, F9, 1/125, ISO 50)

Here is a couple of very unique animals only found in the Galapagos(like most of the animals there). First is a shot of a group of Marine Iguanas basking after a swim in the temperate waters of the islands and second is a very belligerent land Iguana making it quite clear that he was going to walk straight through me if I didn't get out of the way.
