Took my friend Sonny on his first herping trip. We went to the Superstition Mountains, mostly because it’s close, and secondly because I haven’t had my fill of lyre snakes for the year.
The first snake we found was my second Coral snake (Micruroides euryxanthus) for the year.
We went further and stopped for some of the local inverts that Sonny hadn’t seen before, and eventually found a young California Kingsnake.
This last one I took some creative time with and photoshopped in a starry night scene. Kinda fantasy-ish cheesy but whatever. Click on it for the full deal.
