  1. Basic Guidelines: In the strictest sense, nature photography should not include "hand of man elements". Please refrain from images with buildings or human made structures like roads, fences, walls. Pets are not permitted. Captive subjects in zoos, arboretums, or aquariums are permitted, but must be declared, and must focus on the subject, not the captivity. Images with obvious human made elements will likely be deleted from the thread, with an explanation to the photographer. Guidelines are based on PSA rules governing Nature photography which also cover the Nature Forum. Keep your image at/under 1000 pixels on the long axis for in-line viewing. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site at Flicker, Photobucket, your own site, etc. We post one image per week

    Rod, thanks for starting the thread this week.

    The bald eagles pair that nested by the Curtner Elementary School in the San Francisco Bay Area last year and generated some local news are back for this season. They are busy building up their nest again and mating.

  3. This seagull repeatedly dropped whatever it was carrying and then retrieved it in mid-air. Managed to get four images during one attempt, then lost the gull in the viewfinder.

  6. A Coyote stalking his prey. He finally got tired of waiting and sat down a scratched himself. What looked like his wife/ special lady friend stood by and looked completely disinterested. Well guys we all know that feeling. Coyote stalking.jpg

  8. Fred, here's one taken a bit west at El Capitan. Had a chance to photo a full moon over Half Dome that evening but hiked in a mile over 3' deep snow with breakable crust to try for a firefall shot. The moon is a "Folsom, CA moon." Shot not from the usual scrum of photographers copying Rowell's grab shot. I think the composition is better here, sitting in the parking lot under the deck lid of my jeep with ice chest at hand. I like the geometry from this location, 2 right triangles, a parallelogram. It cried out for another shape and since it is an homage to Rowell but also Ansel and Ernst Hass, all instructors at the park, I added a circle, the moon, as a tip of the hat to Ansel's Moon Over Half D El Capitan.jpg ome. creating what Haas wanted to shoot, not new things but old things shot in a new way. I have never seen it shot this way. It is an homage to all Yosemite photographers.
  9. A shot of Geoffrey's Rousette fruit bats at the Monfort Bat Cave in Samal Island, Southern Philippines. This cave was considered the largest fruit bats colony by the Guinness World Record of 2010.
