Snake Season

Our new herping spot is proving to be incredibly diverse and every time we visit it we discover something new. The snakes have definitely been the highlight for me and so far we’ve seen 4 new species. Here are some of my favourite snake pictures.

Thanks again to Carly for being my herping companion. Even though this location really creeps her out she still comes out herping with me. As well as being quite adept at spotting snakes she has also turned her hand to photography. All the pictures above were taken by her, and I think you can agree they are quite stunning.
