Readers’ wildlife photographs

Today we have a fantastic set of photos from reader Linden Gledhill (flickr site here, professional website here, and don’t miss his macro photos of butterfly wings), along with a pic of setup he uses to photograph the insects (last photo). Linden’s notes are indented: I noticed you had run out of readers’ nature photos to post.  I […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Reader Carl Sufit sent us some underwater shots of cephalopods; his notes are indented: I’ll start with some images from Bonaire, of my (and many others’) favorite Order(?),  Octopoda(?) Although they are generally nocturnal hunters, we do get to see them during the day, although they tend to retreat back into a tiny hole in the […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Reader Tony Eales from Queensland sendt some lovely photos; his notes are indented.  The first one is, I think, one of the finest insect photos that’s ever appeared here: A few more insects from down under. First is a Botany Bay Diamond Weevil, Chrysolopus spectabilis: Next is a Sand Wasp genus Bembix, probably Bembix variabilis: Then a Stilt […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Thank you to the readers who have sent me photos in response to my plea, but do keep sending them. I can never have too many. Speaking of pleas, I’ve once again begged some lovely bird photos from Pete Moulton, whose work I often see on his Facebook page. After a sufficient period of my begging […]

Joel Sartore’s photos of (mostly) endangered species

The readers’ wildlife tank is emptying (send in your good photos, please), so today I’ll repost some of the superb work of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore (yes, the magazine’s content is going downhill, but the photos are and have always been the best part). Sartore took a year off to help his wife during a […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

I found an old readers’ wildlife post from October, and can’t see that I actually posted it; I believe I was traveling when I prepared it. The photos are from Stephen Barnard, one of our most faithful contributors (and one of the best photographers), so it’s appropriate to start the new year with his work. […]

An end-of-the-year reminder: please keep sending in your good wildlife photos, as I can never have too many! Since September I’ve been posting photos from reader Benjamin Taylor’s odyssey to Africa. Here’s the last batch, all of which were sent in September. His captions are indented: Last month I went on a camping trip around southern […]

This is the last installment of reader Jeffrey Lewis’s underwater photos from Bonaire (see previous installment here). Here’s the intro to the photos, and his IDs and comments are indented: These were all taken on a family vacation to Bonaire, an island in the Caribbean just off the coast of Venezuela.  It’s a special municipality […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

We’re featuring again today the photos of our youngest contributor, Jamie Blilie (12). His dad James gives the descriptions (indented): My 12-year-old son Jamie has been busy with his camera again! [JAC: it’s a Canon Powershot SX 530 “super zoom” camera.]  I am amazed at how vivid their colors are in winter. Our feeders are really […]
