Readers’ wildlife photos

Today’s photos come from reader Ivar Husa, whose captions are indented. Send in your photos, folks, as I go through seven contributions a week.

Today’s photos come from two sources. First, a fly from Diana MacPherson. Hi Jerry, below are some images I took of a deer fly (Chrysops excitans) that rested for quite a long time on my glass table outside this evening. I took various angles but I think the side angle is the best even though […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

I implore you once again to send in your good photos. I have a reserve, but it’s not large.

His captions and IDs are indented: Here are […]

Regular Stephen Barnard has been busy this winter, explaining the dearth of photos from him. But today he sent a batch which weren’t labeled. However, you can recognize the animals, including Deets the Wonder Dog. The landscapes are taken on his property.               And three landscapes. Stephen called the […]
