It makes no difference really, as the pictures shown so far are great. That first, Frog picture is really wonderful, clear, well lit.

Keep'em coming, I think this is a great idea for a thread.
i'm sure there will be many more to come

Here is one from today. I was out trying to get bees in flight and I spotted this five lined skink sunning himself. This was as close as I could get before he bolted for cover.

Wow! These are all great photos, even if they aren't all reptiles. I saw (as it quickly scurried away) my first lizard of the spring. I'll have to look for the lizard I took last year - it was a cute little one.

This is a Side Blotched Lizard. They like to scurry around the rocks in sagebrush country. Very fast and are usually about 4" to 6" long. They can make you jump when they suddenly takeoff. As you can see, they can blend in pretty well. This was actually taken with my Fuji several years ago- Bruce

Great shots everyone.

Thanks Roy.

Using CS2, but only just started playing with it properly. I have had it since it came out, but used auto everything for most shots.

Just started taking control and changing things myself. The photos do look much better printed out, plus these are linked to photobucket, which apparently can do some nasty things to photos.

Any tips gratefully received, as the book I have for CS2 is about 3 inches thick!
