I have not been lucky enough to see one of these yet, and this is one of the coolest pictures I have seen on SP in a long time. You ought to attach it to this album: http://www.summitpost.org/album/227316/reptiles-amphibians.html.

I also think you should make an album or other page for your pictures of the Watauga Reserve; you have quite a set of nice shots from there and have piqued my interest in going there myself.

Re: Awesome

Thanks. I will attach to reptiles page and consider a page on Watauga Reserve. It is a small place---3,500 acres, but connected to the Watauga Gorge. Like many areas in the eastern National Forests it is always in danger of logging.
