I realize that on here, we are all catfisherman, and that is our common thread, but without the nature that surround us on every trip we often times would have some uneventful trips! So I'm dedicating this thread simply to the other creatures that are around us everyday, and that we sometimes are too busy to take notice of, but are there to make your "slow" days if you just take time to keep your eyes open for them. I wish I could have gotten all pictures of all the animals I saw on this trip, but alas, some were just fleeting glances that are burned into my memory, instead of on my computer. We started our trip off spotting the bobcat, that at first ran off ahead, but on backtracking we caught him/her coming back through a crossroads and got a couple really good shots. I spotted the pitcher plants growing in there normal location, but this time I knew what I was looking at and was able to get some field photos(notice the pitchers haven't started growing back yet). Was travelling another road when we came across this beautiful(and feisty) cornsnake that posed for a couple cool pictures! Later we saw a pair of black beears on the way home, just after dark, but they scooted before we could get set with the camera! Anyway, enjoy the pictures and remember that being an angler is about more than just catching fish(though that sure does help), its about being a part of our natural enviroment, and giving back as much as we take.
