Readers’ wildlife photos

Reader Doug Hayes from Richmond, Virginia, sends regular installments of birds he sees in his yard or nearby. This is “The Breakfast Crew” series, and we’re up to part seven. Doug’s captions and IDs are indented: This Great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is an honorary member of the Breakfast Crew, as I have been photographing […]

I importune, implore, and beseech you to send in your good wildlife photos, as my tank is inexorably running dry. But today we have some gorgeous photos of wasps taken by Alan Clark from Liverpool. His caption (there’s just the introduction) is indented. Here are some photos of German Wasps, Vespula germanica. They were photographed […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

Please send your good wildlife (or people) photos in, folks; I am getting a bit nervous. Yes, that’s my default state, but I do need photos. We have three contributors today, the first being from Joshua Lincoln, who contributes a lovely fly: I was looking for dragonflies and butterflies by the Otter Creek near Middlebury, […]

The morning dew has collected on the leaves […]

He sent a batch of lovely photos, and I’ve indented his notes below. A few “wildlife” photos for you […]

Readers’ wildlife photos

We have a seriously low gas tank in the photo juggernaut, so please send in your good wildlife photos.  We’ve already almost done away with the “photos of readers” feature due to a lack of participation, and I’d hate to ditch this feature, too. Fortunately, Joe Routon sent some photos of H. sapiens and their […]

Readers’ wildlife photos and videos

We have a couple of contributors today, and once again I urge you to get those good wildlife photos in. First up are DUCK photos by a reader who introduces himself (yes, I drew a picture of a cat of his choosing—a lynx—in his copy of WEIT). All readers’ comments are indented: I am John […]
