Warm and wet is also good for the amphibians. Here's a young Green Frog - has not quite lost all of its tail…

Slimy Salamanders are abundant over at Rocky Fork - nice of this one to pose for a few moments!

American Toads are "out and about" all over Holston Mountain on warm wet summer days.

And it's been a perfect summer for reptiles too. Look how much this female Eastern Box Turtle is enjoying her summer bath.

A few young Copperheads in a deep rock crevice at Flint Rock. Not the best photo - used flash to illuminate the crevice, but too much glare off the rock surfaces…

Saving the best for last… Was out hiking at Holston Mountain about 2 weeks ago, and one of my dogs surprised this pair of Timber Rattlesnakes. It is mating season for the Timber Rattlers, so this is probably a male/female pair. Can you see both heads and both tails?
