Readers’ wildlife photos

July 5, 2021 • 8:00 am

Send in your photos, please; I can always use more.

Today sees the welcome return of Stephen Barnard of Idaho, who sends us a potpourri of photos. His captions are indented, and you can enlarge his photos by clicking on them.

When I drove down my driveway about an hour ago, I spooked a cow moose and twin calves [Alces alces]. They went into the creek where the twins started nursing. Later, they came back in the yard to check out the sprinklers, which were tempting in 92F heat. Crazy.

Moose twins (very frisky):

Western kingbird [Tyrannus verticalis]:

  1. As always, superb photos from Stephen. I’d love to know what cameras/lenses he uses.

    1. For wildlife I use a Canon 5D (Mark III and IV) and two lenses: A Canon 500mm, often with a 1.4x extender, and a Canon 100-400mm zoom.

  2. Love seeing those moose twins with such long legs enlarged…very cute.
    Wonderful photos as always.

  3. Thank you for the beautiful photos from an idyllic-looking place. One question: how do you get the birds to pose for you?!
