It really depends on the club. They are designed to flex and rebound a certain amount during the swing and contact with the ball, not to be leveraged under a rock. The are useful for flipping relatively light cover, such as tin or small rocks, but they definitely have a limit. My field hook is made from a very old iron. It tends to bend a bit if I push it too far, but bends right back no problem. Metal fatigue will probably cause it to fail eventually, but hopefully only after many more years of service. Lots of buzztails in the Phoenix area, great place to go herping. Definitely don't want to go sticking your fingers up under rocks though, lol.

A switch to Flickr



Speckled Kingsnake portrait.



Close up of the dorsal scales of the Speckled Kingsnake, note the apical pits.

Checkered Garter Snake.



Banded Rock Rattlesnake not digging having its picture taken.

I have switched from Photobucket (which has become a big steaming pile of... well) to Flickr. So far I'm impressed with Flickr. I'm worried about what may become of the links from Photobucket though. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

Goodbye, Photobucket...

My switch to Flickr came far to late to save this thread. I'm really bummed Photobucket has decided to hold my work here and elsewhere hostage. I'll start a new thread soon, maybe repost some of the projects when I have time.
