Readers’ wildlife photographs

How many of you lazy suckers in the U.S. took advantage of the extra hour to sleep rather than rise and enjoy life? Your genial host, of course, is hard at work providing entertainment and Albatross grooming. Reader John Pears sent us some Turkish birds: I’m a fairly regular visitor to Turkey where I visit […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Richard Bond sent some photos of Big Animals from a trip to Africa. His notes: These were taken in Nairobi National Park. As you leave the international airport in Nairobi, you see a prominent fence along the Nairobi-Mombasa road, which borders the park. I had always assumed that this meant that the park was some sort […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Keep sending ‘em in, folks, but be sure that your photos are good. I feel bad when I decide that I can’t use a reader’s photos. Fortunately, most are display-worthy, and we’ll start with two from regular Stephen Barnard in Idaho (the indented words are his): Mallard (Anas platyrhychos) about to stick a landing: Red-tailed […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We begin today’s installment with a photo of domestic cats (Felis catus), but special ones. The first photo below sent to me by Bengal breeder Anthony Hutchinson, who threatens to deluge me with photos of Bengals until I adopt one or more of his. (Believe me, I don’t see that as a threat!). I know I need […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

I don’t feel at ease without a backlog of readers’ photos, and it’s fun to choose which ones I’ll show each morning. Today I’m in a bird mood, which is good because birds are pretty much what everyone sends! Our morning selection is a panoply of nice photos from reader Ed Kroc, who sends the information below: […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Thanks to readers who sent me wildlife photos, the tank is topping up again. We have pix from two readers today; the first is a set of three from Ivar Husa. His notes: These pictures were taken on a ‘business trip’ to Florida this month. The trip resulted in photographs of close to 30 ‘life birds’ […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Okay, I’m back and there are no wildlife photos in the queue, so go ahead and inundate me.  But remember, I want good photos, not blurry pictures of some rodent in the distance.  Today we have an experiment in long-distance photography by reader John Scanlon: it was an interesting experiment. The only camera I use these […]

Chicago: Sunrise

It was 23 hard hours of traveling for Professor Ceiling Cat yesterday, and all that after only three hours of sleep. He’s a tough moggie! But, when he awoke this morning, he saw a vision of Chicago, with the rising sun setting a few of the buildings aflame.

Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader John Harshman sent some last-minute photos that will allow me to slip in a “Readers’ wildlife” feature while I’m on the move (at the moment in the Sofia airport).  These are photos from his recent trip to Australia: First, a four-part sequence of mating Pacific black ducks (Anas superciliosa). If you know mallards, the […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have not only some wildlife today, but also some astronomy, as this seemed the appropriate place to put it. Apparently there was a partial solar eclipse yesterday, and reader/photographer Ben Goren caught some nice images on his camera: Here’s the haul from today’s partial solar eclipse. First up is from a little after the […]
