Readers’ wildlife photographs

Put your hands together for reader Dom, who sacrificed his very blood so that readers could learn some natural history. His words: One Saturday a few weeks ago in Norfolk I gave blood so that WEIT readers could see a cleg [JAC: “cleg” is British argot for “horsefly”]! Haematopota pluvialis – I love green eyes – […]

Reader Robert Lang continues his photodocumentation of Costa Rica: Continuing January’s Costa Rica trip. I shot a lot of birds, so am dividing them into groups. A few months ago we had hummingbirds. Coming up in a while, water birds. But today: passerines, raptors, and everything else. At the Monteverde Biological Reserve, the tiny Bananaquits (Coereba flaveola) […]

Today we catch up with the contributions of Stephen Barnard from Idaho. Mimetic fly? It’s pretty scary looking and wasp-size, but I’m not aware of an actual wasp that looks much like this. It almost looks generically mimetic, like it’s covering all the waspy characteristics without any one species in mind. Stephen then found the […]

These were largely taken during the winter, when I had very little invertebrate companionship except for the occasional creepy crawly. Obviously I was experimenting on photography against white backgrounds. Some of these were taken with an ancient […]

But with a day’s hiking you can achieve solitude and superb views. Reader Mehul sent some photos he took in the Yosemite area (his full set of photos is […]

I’m off to Poland, so if you have wildlife photos to send, please do it beginning Saturday, after I’m settled. Today we have some avifauna from reader Karen Bartelt. High Cliff State Park, near Appleton, WI, has become a favorite place to visit.  We camped there for three days in late July. The first night, we […]

When I’m on the road it’s easier for me to post readers’ photographs from emails than from my folder (which I’ll bring to Poland nonetheless), so by all means send me your good photograph on Friday or thereafter. Today we feature our most stalwart stalwart, Stephen Barnard from Idaho. Stephen originally identified this as a […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader Darrell Ernst sent these photos back in June but they’ve just reached the head of the queue. My family went to Sebastian Inlet [Florida] this past Saturday morning and my daughter, Brianna, of course took her camera. Unfortunately I was stuck at home working on painting the house. My loss too because they had a […]
