Out in Idaho, Stephen Barnard is trying to take the perfect bird pictures. He sends three species today.
First, a diving Swainson’s Hawk (Buteo swainsoni):
Sandhill crane (Grus canadensis):
An osprey (Pandion haliaetus) with a rainbow trout:
And moar Swainson’s Hawks:
And reader Ken Phelps sends some unusual macro photography:
I thought you might be interested in these photos of some ants eating a dead Bumblebee. They were taken with a Canon 5D2, a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens, and Canon macro twin flash.
If you know the species of the ant, weigh in below.
