Readers’ wildlife photos

Send in your pictures, I implore you! We’re already out of “photos of readers”, and I’d hate to ditch two features. Today we have wildlife photos from two readers. First up is Roger Sorensen.

Readers’ wildlife photos

Today we have some odds and ends, individual pictures (or a small set) sent by readers. First up is from Joe McClain (all readers’ captions are indented): I submit for your consideration for the Readers’ Wildlife Photos category this photograph.

How do you feel about some of our non-animal relatives today? Reader Leo Glenn in Pennsylvania favors us with some plant photos as well as a variety of animal groups, including amphibians felids. His captions are indented: It’s been a while since I’ve contributed wildlife photos. With everyone on lockdown, I recently shared some “virtual […]

Here’s the frog!

Did you spot the frog in the tweet from Matt Clancy that I posted this morning? (I also put up the full picture.): Spot the #frog Mount #Kinabalu, Sabah, #borneo pic.twitter.com/uOFzSZQXU9 — Matt Clancy (@MattClancy94) April 29, 2020 Here it is! The feet are a giveaway—if you even saw them.

Did you spot the frog in Douglas Pew’s photo this morning? Here’s the reveal: Ha! Here is the frog, crouched near the bones of the unfortunate fellow. [A predecessor who didn’t get out.]

Spot the frog!

Reader Douglas Pew sent a “spot the. . ” photo, this time an amphibian. The first picture is the puzzle, while the second shows the rescued frog. As I finished clearing out the leaves of my window well I noticed this heretofore unseen inhabitant.  Either it leapt into the now leafless depression or I was […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Send in your photos, please. I’ve gotten some recent batches and have a backlog, but one can never have too many. Today’s batch comes from Aussie Tony Eales of Brisbane, whose notes are indented: It’s been a while since I sent any chordates and I do run across them occasionally when looking for more interesting […]

Reader’s wildlife photos

by Greg Mayer A corespondent from Florida sends the following photos from Fort Myers. First up, a giant or marine or cane toad (Bufo marinus) that is living under a beehive. In this first photo, you can see that the variegated coloring is fairly cryptic against the leaf litter background. Getting a little closer, a […]
