INTERESTING PHOTOS
     All photographs were taken in Liberty, Polk, Tyler, and Hardin counties in East Texas. The majority of the photos were
    taken within the borders of various units in the Big Thicket National Preserve. The photos shown include a lot of species
    that can be found in eastern North America from Mexico to Canada.
      Only our photos are shown on this site. We try to take pictures of the critters in the natural state without catching them.
    We do use a light set-up to attract moths and will get other critters in the process. Experts all over the U.S. assist us in
    getting the I.D.'s shown. A lot of the critters do not have a common name and scientific classification is used to get an answer.
