    A few weeks ago I took a trip down a river near me by boat. I was hoping to find some snakes and maybe even cp's. I saw one snake jump from a tree into the water, and I found some places next to the river that looked promising for cp's. I plan to search those sometime in the future.

    Here are some of the pics I took.

    I went with a friend and he brought along a cooler full of beer. As the trip went along, and the beer disappeared, I decided that I would drive the boat. So no some of my pics are ruined buy his head. LOL. I'll have to crop him out later. It was a real struggle to drive this boat and take pics at the same time, so as much as I tyred to not get him in the pic he seemed to have a talent of sneaking in anyway.












    We pulled over to shore for little break and I went searching for cp's and reptiles while he released some beer.

    I saw a ground skink run under a log and I turned the log over to catch it but instead I found this fiddler crab.











    No Matter how hard I tyred, he was very reluctant to use his giant pincher.

    But I managed to get him mad enough to give me a demonstration



    Like I said before, My buddy was drinking a lot of beer, and it became a struggle of survival, (mostly trying to keep him in the boat) just to make if back to where we started. There was a really big bird that would fly up river everytime we got close to it. this went one for about two miles. I tried and tried to get a pic of it. So I was driving the boat, trying to keep my buddy from turning the boat over, and trying to get a clear pic of this bird.

    During all this I some how took this pic. It was a total accident but I think it's a pretty cool looking pic.

    The river made a Y and the bird was sitting on a tree just past the Y. We had to make a turn the opposite way so this was the last chance I had at getting a pic of it. Luckily it let us close enough to get these pics.







    It's hard to see the bird in two of the pics but he's there.

    It's wing span was about 6 feet.

    We also saw a bald eagle, but I wasn't quick enough to get a pic.

    That's a great blue heron. They are beautiful birds but cranky and loud and have very big poop.

    Beautiful photos! I wish I had been there. It looks very peaceful...

    I was walking along a stream/drainage channel near the highway several weeks ago and flushed a great blue heron. The bird flew up and dropped one of those massive poops on a car that had just exited the highway. As the sign says at the end of the ramp, Welcome to West Hartford.
