Readers’ wildlife photos

Today’s photos come from reader Damon Williford: Attached are some recent wildlife photos from southern Texas. The first 2 photos are of a dragonfly, the Seaside Dragonlet (Erythrodiplax berenice). [JAC: I assume these are different sexes, as the male is described as dark and the female much more yellow: The next 5 photos are some […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Reader Robert Lang sent some photos of primates from a trip he took to Costa Rica earlier this year. His notes: We saw a lot of monkeys, but mostly as disconnected parts glimpsed through heavy leaf cover. The mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata), though, eventually came right into the cabin area where we were staying. […]

Let’s finish up the batch of photos sent by reader David Molloy, whose first installment was posted yesterday. As he noted in that post: Fulfilled a lifetime ambition last month and traveled to the geomorphological wonderland that is Chile (a great recommendation for next WEIT trip AFTER Australia). The Andes, Patagonia and the Atacama lived […]

Australian reader David Molloy sent a batch of photos from Chile, half of which I’ll put up today. His notes: Fulfilled a lifetime ambition last month and traveled to the geomorphological wonderland that is Chile (a great recommendation for next WEIT trip AFTER Australia). The Andes, Patagonia and the Atacama lived up to every expectation […]

Readers’ wildlife photo

Just one photo today as there is a lot of persiflage to come, and you’re spoiled with photos anyway! This, of course, is from Stephen Barnard, who is watching the two bald eaglets (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) grow rapidly, stuffed with fish by their parents Desi and Lucy. This is the biggest fish I’ve seen them bring to […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We have miscellaneous photos from regulars today. First, from Mark Sturtevant: While going over some old pictures, I suddenly realized I had never sent you pictures from the batch of ‘hickory horned devil’ caterpillars that I had raised some years ago. These grow to become the longest caterpillar in the U.S., and later they become […]

We have some photos of birds today from reader Karen Bartelt, taken in Big Bend National Park in south Texas. Cactus wren, Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus. Curve-billed thrasher, Toxostoma curviostre Pyrrhuloxia, Cardinalis sinuatus: would not come out from behind the branches. Vermillion flycatchers (males and  female), Pyrocephalus rubinus: one of the campgrounds was just buzzing with these. Male: […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a melange of photos today, but will start with Stephen Barnard’s documentation of the eaglets growing in Idaho: Lucy (?) and a fast-growing chick: The nestlings are exercising their wings. Nearby lives a Great Horned Owl (Bubo virginianus): Anne-Marie Cournoyer found what appears to be a mating aggregation of garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis) in […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

For Mother’s Day we have a bouquet of butterflies, all from reader Robert Lang, and all taken in Costa Rica: We saw gorgeous butterflies everywhere, but the majority of these photos were shot at the butterfly conservatory in the town of Monteverde, such as this Banded Orange Longwing (Dryadula phaetusa). Another brilliant bit of orange is […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

First we’ll put up the last moiety of reader John Phelps’s submission: photos he took in and around Kruger National Park in South Africa. His captions are indented: White backed vulture (Gyps africanus) – just left a carcass to roost in a nearby tree: Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus)– quite a common sighting and the young are amusing. […]
