Readers’ wildlife photos

I’ve put up a selection of bird and mammal photos from Ralph Burgess, sent on September 19. His IDs and notes are indented (I’ve added links and the common name). Here are some pictures taken in Kruger Nation Park over the past couple of weeks. Perhaps I could also make a case for you to […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a new contributor today: Samuel Kornstein, who sent this just a few days ago. His notes are indented, and he has a great wildlife photography site here. I have a bunch of wildlife photos to share. These are all from last week, taken during a family trip to Manuel Antonio and Lake Arenal […]

Today we have the second and last batch of Joe Dickinson’s photos from Peru (the first batch is here). Joe’s notes and IDs are indented. I continue with more monkey business.  Same species (and individuals) as at the end of the previous post. The wooly monkey (genus Lagothrix): I include this shot just to show how close we were […]

Today’s contribution, photos from Peru, are from a regular, Joe Dickinson. His captions are indented. Here is the first of two sets of wildlife photos from a recent trip to Peru that I’ve been saving until you returned from you antarctic adventure. Not very exotic, but I think this flight of pigeons in front of […]

Send those photos in, folks! I can always use more. Reader Ralph Burgess sent some swell photos from Kruger National Park, a place I hope to visit one day. His notes are indented below: As requested, a selection here, all from the past couple of weeks in Kruger NP.  I’ve eschewed the more conventional iconic […]

His captions are indented: I’m fortunate enough to have taught field courses in both Borneo and South Africa […]

Female bonobos (but not female chimps) help their sons get mates

I’ll put this up quickly as I’m getting ready to leave. This multiauthored paper from Current Biology (click on screenshot below; access free with legal Unpaywall app, pdf here and reference at bottom) documents that if you’re a male bonobo (Pan paniscus), having your mom around at mating time gives you a serious reproductive advantage […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader “sherfolder” sent us some primates: A few weeks ago I had the wonderful experience of watching macaques on a rock on the beach of the Thai island Koh Larn. Until sunset there was only half an hour left but luckily the light was enough for some nice pictures. I don’t know what species of […]

Readers’ wildlife photographs

Joe Dickinson found some photos he’d sent me but I never put up (this happens sometimes due to the volume of my email). I herewith apologize and present Joe’s photos and narrative (his captions are indented): Here is a fourth set (previously misplaced) from my 2012 trip to Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia in south central […]

Readers’ wildlife photos (and video)

It’s time for my sporadic plea for more photographs from readers. While I have about ten sets in reserves, that will last for only a week and a half. If you have good wildlife photos, please send them to me soon.  And thanks to all the photographers who have obliged me in the past! Reader Rick […]
