I was able to photograph and video a fair number of reptiles thanks to my graduate student, Jarret Kachel. He and some friends went out yesterday for a snake count and brought back a number of critters to photograph. I hope you like the pictures. I have a lot more to post. I was out before light and photographed black-crowned night herons, cattle egrets, and snowy egrets at a rookery. You wouldn’t expect these long-necked, fragile looking birds to be violent but they were very aggressive to the point of pulling out feathers.
