At the beginning of the year I went to Hogsback for Botany related work and luckily managed to do some herping in between.

Well done man. Some cool finds.

I would still like to find a Skapie with it's eggs.

Do you purposely "fade" the edges of the pictures or are they from film?

My favourite is the Bradipodion shot.

My favourite place to go... Mrs and I make a point of going at least once a year. The natal black snakes seem to be the most common snake I've come across. Some really nice photos!
