Please send in your wildlife photos. I know some of you are sitting on good ones!
Today’s photos, half of a larger batch) come from reader Dave (website here), and portray a variety of critters and plants (and one astronomy photo). A few have locations specified, but Dave adds, “Most are from upstate New York, from gardens or indiscriminate hikes. By the time I edit the backlog, though, months pass, and any recollection of when and where dries up.” Captions and IDs are Dave’s, and you can click on the photos to enlarge them.
