Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have moar hippos today, this time from reader Richard Bond: I am not sure that these hippo (Hippopotamus amphibius) photographs are up to Bob Lundgren’s standard (WEIT 23/05/15), but, after his and your encouragement, here they are anyway. The first three were taken in the Masai Mara [Kenya]. We were standing on a bank above the […]

I have a big backlog of photographs from Stephen Barnard in Idaho; these are what I have from the last two days alone. They include a wonderful pygmy rabbit, which Stephen is feeding with carrots and kale, and a newborn moose. The second photo shows Desi and Lucy’s chicks; look how fast they’ve grown! Only about two […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Reader Joe Dickinson has some nice Sunday pinnipeds for us. His notes: Walking recently at Seacliff State Beach, CA, I encountered a California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) doing the same, providing nice views of two features that distinguish sea lions (and fur “seals”) from true seals: an external ear flap and the ability to rotate the […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Perhaps many Americans won’t be on the Internet today, it being a long holiday weekend and all; but I can’t withhold our usual nature snaps from those who online, or from foreign readers. Here’s today’s installment from reader Tony Eales in Australia. And keep those pictures coming in—the tank is a bit low! Tony’s notes, sent on […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Today we have . . . . a passel of hippos (Hippopotamus amphibius, and remember that name). I’ve never seen so many! These photos are from reader Bob Lundgren: The first four photos are of the Retima hippo pool in Serengeti National Park. It’s well populated as you can see in the first photo and typical of […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have a grab-bag of miscellaneous photos today, starting with a “spot the animal” quiz. This one is easy, and an enlargement is at the bottom of this post.  Reader Florian wrote in yesterday: Hiking in the desert this morning in the Indian Canyons south of Palm Springs, Calif. I stopped to take picture of the […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a rara avis today from reader Mal Morrison, who is too self-denigrating about his photo: You may not want to use this because it’s not a great photo but I thought I’d send it because the bird is quite rare. It’s a male Dartford Warbler (Sylvia undata). According to the RSPB there are […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Keep those pictures coming in, folks. The tank is half full, but I like a comfortable backlog. (Don’t forget to send Latin binomials!) Reader Mal Morrison sent some photos from his constitutional: A couple of pictures from my morning walk on Dartmoor (Devon). The butterfly is a Small Copper (Lycaena phlaeas). The bird is a […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have contributions from two readers today. First, Joe Dickinson sent some “non-avian wildlife” (his term) from a recent trip: From a recent road trip to Nebraska, here are some shots of non-avian wildlife.  First, a golden-mantled ground squirrel (Callospermophilus lateralis) that approached me at a vista point along US 160 in southern Colorado, probably hoping […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs: Special travel edition

Reader Susan Heller sent me a bunch of photos from her recent (April) trip to Istanbul, a city I’ve visited three times and absolutely love. So did she. Her are her “wildlife photos” from that fabled town. I’m not in the habit of posting travel photos, so keep on sending me wildlife , but these were […]
