We’re back to wildlife photos, and today’s batch comes from Brian Cox, an instructor at Assinboine Community College in Manitoba. His notes and IDs are indented, and you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.
You don’t have to trek into the vast wilds to find beautiful creatures. All of these images were taken in my yard or city I live in: Brandon, Manitoba, Canada.
A garden spider (Araneus diadematus) waiting for a catch.
A sawyer beetle (Monochamus scutellatus) is about to make a move.
This little house sparrow (Passer domesticus) was sitting right outside my kitchen window, puffed up against the cold.
I took one step too close for this pair of Canada geese (Branta canadensis).
