Readers’ wildlife photos

Today we have the first of several sets of photos taken by reader Joe Dickinson in Alaska. His notes are indented: Here is the first of perhaps four sets of photos from a trip to Alaska about five years ago.   I’ll start with a landscape, a crystal clear Denali seen from a train going from Anchorage […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Time to think about sending me photos again; seven dollops a week really lowers the tank.  And if you’re reader Peter Ayling, please contact me, as I seem to have no copies of the photos you sent. Today we have some lovely photos from reader Terry Milewski, who has appeared on this site before (see […]

Readers’ wildlife

Reader Tom Carrolan found snowy owls (Bubo scandiacus)! Some of his pictures of eagles will appear next week. Up in Northern NY surveying Rough-legged Hawks, but… [JAC: The first one’s either a female or a youngster, as they are flecked with brown, but males are nearly pure white, and you see one in the second […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Joe Dickinson found some photos he’d sent me but I never put up (this happens sometimes due to the volume of my email). I herewith apologize and present Joe’s photos and narrative (his captions are indented): Here is a fourth set (previously misplaced) from my 2012 trip to Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia in south central […]

Here are some gorgeous swans (and cygnets!), as well as a bee, photographed by reader Mark Ayling, whose notes are indented: Here are some photos from the pond at Brookfield Park, Littlehampton, UK.

Among our most stellar photographers is Pete Moulton from Arizona, who, though usually sending us birds, demonstrates today his equal facility with insect subjects. Peter’s captions are indented: First, the obligatory Pied-billed Grebe, Podilymbus podiceps, this one in basic (= winter) plumage at Papago Park in October. The pair of Pied-billeds at this pond apparently triple-brooded […]

Today we’re featuring the insect photos of Mark Sturtevant as well as a single photo from PCC(E). Mark’s captions are indented. Here are more pictures of arthropods from the summer of 2017. The first pictures are of a kind of bee, and it is not being nice. It is a kind of ‘cuckoo’ bee, a […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have some photos by two people today. The first is from reader Gilbert Klapper, who send birds and antelopes.  His notes are indented: Here are three photos of brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis) taken in Key West in 2017. Here are two from Yellowstone Park taken in 2005: Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis) and a Pronghorn (Antilocapra americana). Not […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader Duncan McCaskill from Canberra, Australia sent a series of photos documenting a kerfuffle between ravens and barn owls. Ravens always win a confrontation like this if there are more than one of them. Duncan’s notes are indented: Back in August, I heard a great commotion amongst the local birds around my home in Canberra. […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

The response to my call for photos has been tame, and I might have to start putting up photo posts on a sporadic basis. If you have good photos (and I emphasize “good”), please send them to me. Today’s post involves my favorite brand of waterfowl: DUCKS! It comes from reader William Savage, whose notes […]
