Readers’ wildlife photos

It’s been a while since we’ve had a collection of photos from Stephen Barnard in Idaho, though I’ve posted his documentation of The Gadwell Clan. Here are some non-duck photos with his captions: I look for these Common Nighthawks (Chordeiles minor) when I’m fishing. When they show up in numbers (which they do most mornings and […]

Readers wildlife photos

Keep those photos coming in, folks, or we’ll never get to 50,000 subscribers (see next post).  Reader Ed Croc has sent us some gulls: This has been an insanely busy summer for me so far and I have a large backlog of photos that I would like to send your way. It’s difficult for me […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

I’m beginning to get a bit nervous as the photo tank empties, so please remember to send in your good photos, please. Fortunately, I have at least a week’s worth, but remember, I can’t do this without the readers’ help. Mark Sturtevant sent some lovely insect photos, and his notes are indented (don’t miss the […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader Mark Sturvant, an expert in insect photography, sent some lovely photos on June 6; his notes are indented: Attached is another set of pictures for the readers of WEIT. In the first picture we have the lovely Eastern pondhawk dragonfly (Erythemis simplicicollis). This male is nearing completion of its transformation from a youthful green […]

We have some younger photographers who are very promising. One is Jamie Blilie. His father James sent in Jamie’s photos in April with some notes and IDs: Here are some more photos from my son, Jamie, age 13.  Shot with his Canon Powershot SX530 HS camera.   This one is a little unusual:  Yellow-rumped Warbler (a.k.a.

We have a new contributor today, reader José Ramón López from Puebla, Mexico, a lovely town that I visited several years ago and will revisit this coming November. Not all of his species are identified, so readers can help. His notes are indented: I submit four non-artsy photos. Hope they´re good enough… The first two: […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

I must flee for a while again this morning, but will be back with some thoughts on free speech later. In the meantime, we have some nice photos of birds today. The first were sent by reader Darrell Ernst, who says “These were taken by my daughter Brianna with a Nikon D3200.” Don’t forget to […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have turtles today—turtles all the way down! Reader Joe Dickinson sent photos and descriptions on May 24: I missed World Turtle Day [May 23].  Here is what I should have sent. First, some slider turtles (Trachemys scripta) from near Charleston, SC, where they are native and from Santa Cruz, CA, where they are invasive.  […]

Readers’ wildlife photos (and videos)

We’re going to omit the usual wildlife pics today on the grounds that few people will be reading on the holiday, at least in America, and I’m sure the photographers want lots of folks to see their work. So here are three of mine: bunnies that I saw on my way to work. They’re Eastern […]

Today we have some photos sent by reader Darrell Ernst in Florida (as noted, they were taken by his daughter). His comments are indented. Here are a few from our local area, not all birds! (All taken by my daughter Brianna). This Eastern Gray Squirrel, Sciurus carolinensis, doesn’t seem to be the trusting sort. This Florida […]
