Here are the photos I took on the Rodman
Reservoir field trip. We had a GREAT turn out and an awesome time! Shame
on those of you who didn't make it. Seriously, though, it is truly
a fun trip that you will want to go on next year.
Thanks to all who attended. We had about
30 people there, including Todd Breeze from the Gainesville
Herpetological Society (and current JHS member also). As
usual, Rick Wells did most of the grunt work in the water. I
think the driest he ever was, was on the drive out there. We
caught very few herps, but it was still an awesome trip! We
got a little frustrated at the lack of herps, but the humor was
still there. We never did find that hand we were looking for.
Shawn Jenkins was one of the few who actually found a snake :)
Deep Creek was the highlight. The water was VERY cool.
Many took part in diving off the top of the culverts, including Rick
Wells death defying belly flop! It took 30 minutes for the
water to fill up again. Enjoy the photos, and those who did
not go this year, we will not accept any excuses next year for not
going. By the way Bob, don't forget to take your wallet out of
your pocket BEFORE going in the water!
