Herp Pal and I are off in search of the elusive Yellow Lady's Slipper orchid today. With any luck, we'll have an exciting post (with a photo! dare we hope?) for you tomorrow. Yes, I'm aware that orchids are not herps, but maybe we will return with photos of a scaly critter as well.
In the meantime, I've added an essay link from the Douglas-fir post of May 28th for your further exploration.
