Hi All,

So I haven't been active on the forum at all in the last year or three but I do have some pictures that you all may enjoy.

Awesome pics man, and seems like from all over!

I am envious every time I see someone photograph C. macropholis as I have been looking for the species for years (not actively, but often in the right areas and hoping to find them).

How about adding some species names for each picture please? I'm okay with the reptiles, but useless with frogs.

Thanx for the post! Don't be so scarce!

Good to have you back, great shots and awesome finds.

That Dwarf Beaked Snake is a winner, they are beautiful little snakes.

Stunning Goose.

Love the fact there's such a variety from all over the country covering diverse habitats.

Don't you want to be a good Ginger and perhaps label the photo's so some of those who aren't field guide heads know what they're looking it?
