Contributor’s Wildlife Photos

by Greg Mayer While Jerry journeys to the Great White South, Matthew and I will be helping to fill in as best we can, so I thought I’d begin with some of my wildlife photos.  First up is a young Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) in my backyard in Racine, Wisconsin. This is one of at […]

Today we have some bird photos sent by reader Paul Peed, whose notes are indented and whose images are at eBird and Instagram.  My birding “Patch” is T.M.

Readers’ wildlife photos

Tomorrow morning is the last time you’ll be able to send in readers’ wildlife photos or photos of yourself (“photos of readers”). Today we have a multi-photographer contribution, beginning with another chipmunk photo by Diana MacPherson. Everyone’s captions are indented. Probably the last Eastern chipmunk [Tamias striatus] of the season. This one was startled & […]

From down under, we have some photos of the wonderful local cockatoos from reader Duncan McCaskill. His captions are indented: I’ve had Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus funereus) visit my garden in suburban Canberra fairly often lately, so I thought I’d offer some photos of them. When they’ve been in my garden they mostly just roost for […]

After that my access to email will be spotty for five weeks, and I can’t be sure that things won’t get lost in the crush. Today’s photos come from Barbara Wilson, whose descriptions […]

Today we have some lovely arthropod photos by Tony Eales from Brisbane, whose notes are indented: Things have been really dry where I am and so spring has not sprung as much as I’d hoped for by now. So I went up to the nearby subtropical rainforest area called Mt Mee to see what was […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have two contributors today, the first being naturalist/biologist/photographer/artist Lou Jost, who works at the EcoMinga reserve in Ecuador (as you may recall, Lou wrote the memoriam for nature photographer Andreas Kay, who rediscovered Atelopus coynei, thought to be exinct. Now we hear that Lou and his colleagues have discovered another aposematic frog, and a […]

Today’s photos of animals, all from diverse groups, come from David Campbell, who relates a scary mallard story too—though it turns out all right. David’s captions and tales are indented: Another batch of photographs.  The duck narrative has a happy ending although I didn’t expect one when it happened. Mantispid (Dicromantispa interrupta). Convergent evolution at […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

You have about a week to send me wildlife photos, and I urge you to do so. After that, I may be offline completely for five weeks, and would request that readers not email me. But we continue, and maybe I have a week’s worth of photos. Today’s contribution comes from Debra Coplan, who supplied […]
