Readers’ wildlife photos

There are three contributions today; click all photos to enlarge. First, from reader Dom, a plume moth (a species new to me). His notes and photo: You may like this plume moth – Pterophoridae – photographed on a curtain in daylight. It was hard to get it all in focus & not disturb it. This […]

UPDATE: I clearly don’t know my own favorite bird by sight! I was corrected by numerous readers who told me that this was NOT a peregrine. As reader Rob said in the comments: That’s not a peregrine, that’s a Kestrel, Falco tinnunculus (not to be confused with American Kestrel). An adult peregrine would be slate […]

Reader Tony Eales from Australia sent several photos he took on a ten-year-old trip to Sabah. Where’s Sabah, you ask? It’s one of the states of Malaysia, located in northern Borneo. Malaysia is in yellow below, Sabah in red: Tony notes I thought I’d send some from my trip to Sabah, Malaysia back in 2004. […]

Reader “John in Ethiopia” sends an amazing photo of amazing birds, maribou storks (Leptoptilos crumeniferus), denizens of sub-Saharan Africa. His notes: Marabou storks at the fish market in Awasa, a town in the Rift Valley in Ethiopia, 200 miles south of Addis. It makes me think of a Hieronymus Bosch painting. They are truly hideous birds, […]

Once long ago, she was Matthew Cobb’s student at the University of Manchester. Her photos show the brown or European hare, Lepus europaeus. Kate […]

These come from reader Mark Richardson, who adds this (click photos to enlarge, they’re really nice when big): All the photos were taken around my house (in Washington state) with a Nikon D2Xs and a 200mm f/4 micro lens. This is probably my favorite lens, but it requires a tripod so sometimes taking shots of […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have photos from four readers today, including me. The first is from regular Diana MacPherson, who’s photographing the young Eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus) that frequent her yard. She sent a series of three photos of a juvenile nomming a seed. As always, Diana is concerned about the animal’s facial expression and what emotions it conveys: […]

Chicago: four moods and Chinese food

Here are four photos of downtown Chicago I’ve taken from my crib over the last two weeks. The weather has been variable, and I’ve taken them in storm, sun, sunrise, and sunset. Storm coming: After-storm fog; Lake Michigan is still cold from winter, causing fog when the air is warm. Sunrise yesterday: Sunrise this morning: […]
