We have a bit of a photographic potpourri today. The first one comes from reader Martin Heller:
The attached photo of a Bali beach (but under a roof) in the morning does not say “spot the x” but rather: “how many species do you find?” There is my own footprint, a dog, a bird, some hermit crabs (?) and some small mammals. Could there even be a cat? I’ve never seen a cat on this beach.
How many animals’ tracks can you spot?
Reader Barbara Wilson sends a “spot the ___” photo:
The shrub is Salix geyeriana [Geyer’s Willow], but I don’t know the name of the dragonfly. Taken at Lost Lake near the Santiam Pass in the Cascade Range of Oregon.
Can you find the dragonfly?
Reader Mike Cornwell, who’s working in Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, sent a lovely primate photo. The details:
I’m a long time reader of whyevolutionistrue.com and thought you might enjoy a picture I recently took. I’m working in Borneo right now basically spending 4 weeks here then 2 weeks home rinse/repeat through October. I have weekends free and try to see some local sights. They have an organgutan preserve here which provides a home a home for those displaced by logging activities. The picture was taken at this wildlife center.
And a landscape from Stephen Barnard in Idaho, sent yesterday:
There was a furious thunderstorm with hail this evening, presaging a sunset. Poor Deets hid in the bathtub, afraid of the thunder. Baby Hitch was unfazed. [He’s referring to his older and younger border collies.]
Finally, a picture of Baby Hili, just because you can’t see enough of them:
