With sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s in Northeast Ohio, I had no choice but to go do some “holiday herping” today. Here is some habitat that I checked out.
Turtle buddies – Midland Painted Turtles.
American Bullfrog, there were a bunch of these hanging out, though most were in the water. A few Spring Peepers were calling, but finding one would be like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
I was pleased to see this Northern Water Snake out basking.
I decided to get a shot of it from another angle, because snakes are cool.
Red-eared Slider and its reflection.
What I saw the most of were Midland Painteds – it sure was a nice day to be out.
