Readers’ wildlife photos

Today’s photos come from reader Gregory Zolnerowich, and I’ve indented his captions: I thought I’d share some photos taken by my fellow kayakers and me during our recent 9-day trip along the Kansas River. The photos were taken by me, Steve Garrett, and Lisa Grossman, and I have their permission to use them. Most of […]

Although John Avise contributes the Sunday Duck o’ the Week, he’s sent me a lot of other photos as well, and they’ve been on the back burner. Today I’ll move some to the front, as we’ll see some of the felids John’s photographs, namely bobcats. His words are indented: You don’t necessarily have to visit […]

Readers’ wildlife photos (and a photo of animal mourning)

Send in your photos, as my tank is not sufficiently full for my satisfaction. Today’s wildlife photos come from reader Susan Hoffman, whose captions I’ve indented.

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. It depicts interspecies interaction between a young Sylvilagus floridanus [Eastern cottontail] and a stunning specimen of […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

I hope people aren’t getting jaded at the lovely photos that appear daily. Remember, you’re seeing almost all of them here for the first time. At any rate, here’s another nice set from Doug Hayes in Virginia, whose notes are indented. The title is “The Breakfast Crew: Part 3”, and the lessons are two: get […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Today is catch-up day, in which I put together a few singletons and doubletons submitted by diverse readers. Their captions and IDs are indented. First, two lepidopterans from Diana MacPherson. Here area couple of moth pictures I took. I never noticed this moth before though it’s around a lot. I think I only saw the […]

We continue today with Susan Hoffman’s series of photos from South Africa (first installment here). Susan’s notes and IDs are indented. I saw your appeal for more pics, so I’m finally pulling out some photos that I promised to you quite a while ago, from a trip we made in 2017 to the area near Port […]
