Readers’ wildlife photos

My tank is about half full, so again, please send in your good wildlife photos!

I think the readers are getting spoiled with so many good photos each day, so today I’m putting you on a one-day diet. We have but three pictures, but they’re all good ones, and come from reader Mark Otten. His notes are indented; I’ve added the Latin binomials:

Here are a few bird photos.  Feel free to post any you feel are worthy. All of these were taken in various parks in the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area.
Ruby-throated hummingbird (Archilochus colubris):
Willow flycatcher (Empidonax traillii):
Red-shouldered hawk (Buteo lineatus):

    The wild life photos are a great way to start the day. They usually arrive before I’m sucked into meetings.

    These are beautiful photos. I especially like the willow flycatcher. It’s so delicate.

    I don’t worry about quantity when there is this type of quality. Bravo! All the green and the hummer remind me of Summer.
