These Banded Rock Rattlesnakes we found in the mountains of Az have to be the coolest snakes I've found in the US so far. I made it a point to find them this summer for the first time. Found 2-3 with the help of @tjaychambers and then found this one on my own. Was so stoked. They have a distinct green hue to them that is hard to bring out in photos. Can't wait for next summer to find some more.
Looking back to the Galapagos trip in 2011... right when we got from the plane to the boat, I was just looking out in the water thinking "I wonder what we're going to see this trip?" This black-tipped reef shark was right there when the thought came into my mind. I knew it would be epic. I wanted to get my snorkel gear and jump in so bad. We saw so many sharks while snorkeling that trip. It was awesome. @imantisocial @mfrazier72 @gilbertmike shout out to my water loving dudes out there @nate_e_poo
Finding me in a bar is like seeing Bigfoot in the forest. It does happen...but you really have to be on the lookout. Last Zero Cold War premiere tonight at the Red Room. Thanks @redroomblake and @joshuarayburn for the support. About to watch @tommygunz__69 handle business. SOTY for sure. #coldwarishere #coldwariscoming @zeroskateboards @jamiethomas @daneburman
Yo @tumyeto still tryin to come up son! #timtimline problem is, I don't have a "tight ass switch heel" like LP. Maybe you guys can throw me a shoelace or some insole or something... @bamahardy you guys think I can get into Heat 9 for the old man contest at Tampa Pro? @silasbaxterneal @mikeanderson @heat_nine
I'm putting this up for @tumyeto cause I said I was going to "fake" enter the #timtimline contest. Open to even fat old pros...so I'm in there! Don't be too harsh on me Mike...I know how you LOVE to hate cause I sit next to you too often judging contests. @boblems @paulzitzer @jamescraig24 @kyleberard
100th post on here...figured I would go with my favorite hummingbird. There's a place in Costa Rica I drag my wife up to everytime we visit. It's a 2 hour drive from the coast directly up to the top of a mountain. These Fiery-throated Hummingbirds are thick in a few spots, but uncommon elsewhere. I'll be stopping there again in March when we go back.
Hot commodity right there. Just leaving my house on my way to the Zero Cold War premiere. Can't wait. I LOVE skate video premieres. My top 3 of all time I've been to are: 1. Plan B-Virtual Reality 2. Lakai-Fully Flared 3. Bones Brigade Documentary first showing. Hope this one sneaks into the top 3. Congrats @gilbertmike @jamiethomas @chriscobracole @ratt_ray and all the dudes. Killing it #coldwariscoming @zeroskateboards
I'm entering a photo contest on B&H into the reptiles/amphibians catwgory. I can only put in 1 photo and have it down to these. Peru frog, spitting cobra, velvet gecko, kalahari gecko and the jaguar frog (funny...all peru or South Africa). Anyways, anyone have any help? I do like the top left frog a lot and lean towards it photographically speaking that is. The cobra is cool just cause its badass.
Let's keep rolling with hummingbirds. Velvet Purple Coronet from when we stayed in Ecuador before flying over to the Galapagos. Ecuador is the best place I've ever been for hummingbirds. Most diversity and populations ever. All you do is change elevation and there's a whole nother round of species to see.
Hummingbird action from a trip to Loreto Mexico. I have shot a lot of hummingbird photos over the years...no joke, probably thousands, and usually its relatively laborious. You find where they're feeding, post up and wait because they tend to frequent the same spots to feed and sit. This one was shot just walking the path back to our rented house though. I looked back and saw I only took 3 total shots but this was one of them. It's my favorite hummingbird photo I have...not even a rare species, it just came out nice. Costa's Hummingbird.
This is a Velvet Gecko from my trip to South Africa. This was the last cool thing I found while there. It actually found me though...I was taking a shower right before leaving the lodge for Durban and something fell onto my head and onto the floor. I assumed it was a frog landing on me but was surprised to find this large velvet gecko. I had to dry off and get dressed with 1 hand so that it didn't get away. Then I took it outside so I could get some photos. Geckos have the best eyes of any animal I think.
This giraffe was about 10 feet from my window of the car. They're super common all over in South Africa...but I never get tired of seeing them. You can buy a giraffe to cruise around your property. I would FOR SURE have some living on my property if I lived there. I looked it up, I think I could afford some. I also saw Warthogs are like $30 each.
