Wildlife Photographers - Land Trust

Hi to all wildlife photographers,

Last year, people in our area formed group called The Haliburton Land Trust to preserve natural habitat and protect animal species. I have been involved as a member and have allowing them to use my photographs for their web site, brochures and other correspondence. They would dearly love to have some photographs of particular species at risk and have provided the following list. Unfortunately, I donít have any shots of these critters that I am aware of .... just the fact that they are at risk, probably means that they are not around much.
Iím wondering if anyone has a photo of the following species (Iíd really like to see what they look like) that they would be willing to let us use for a good charitable cause .... and a credit byline of course.

Southern Flying Squirrel, Five-Lined Skink, Wood Turtle, Eastern Hog-Nosed Snake and Eastern Ribbonsnake. They would be our first choice, but we would settle for any of the rest on the SAR list: Engelmann's Quillwort, Peregrine Falcon, Loggerhead Shrike, Golden-Winged Warbler, Spotted Turtle, Blandings Turtle, Milksnake and Stinkpot (turtle).

  Hi Lyn, I have some pictures of the Eastern Hognose. They may not be what you're looking for, but I can send them to you. Where do you want them sent? Do you want them at a low resolution so you can look at them? Then if you want to use them, I can resend at a higher res. I will also include info on where and when these pictures were taken. Somewhere I also have pictures of the Texas Horned Lizard.

  Wow Sherry, that would be wonderful.
Low res would be great right now. I can see what the Land Trust organizers want and get back to you.
Thanks again

Hello Lyn,
This is the only photo I have of a five-lined skink.
One of my favorite haunts has a lot of them scampering about but they're real tough to photograph.

I also have these on my website:
Milk Snake 1

Milk Snake 2

Eastern Hognose Snake
