As I’m traveling, I’ll post pictures that have arrived in the last several days. And, of course, those come from our prolific and talented contributor Stephen Barnard of Idaho:
I believe this is an Alligator Snapping Turtle (Macrochelys temminckii). I could be wrong, but it looks different from the common snappers I’ve seen. Photographed in Florida.
Cinnamon Teal (Anas cyanoptera) in sunset light.
Read-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) chicks. Mama wasn’t happy to see me hanging around.
Also, Desi (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) taking off from the nest to chase some ravens.
