  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.

    Each member please post no more than just one image to this weekly thread per week. If the information is available, many members appreciate information on your approach to making the image and the names, both common and scientific, of the subject(s). However, while encouraged, these are not required as a component of your contributions.

    The Boxelder Bug, or Boisea Trivittata, is ubiquitous in these parts. It is not uncommon to open up a wall or ceiling to discover literally millions of these, mostly dead, which find their way into any nook or cranny come cold weather. They are not dangerous, just annoying, and something of a joke due to their insidious and unstoppable infiltration into places of human abode.

  3. Scientists have found that raccoons are incredibly smart as they continue to adapt to the environment and their intelligence continue to evolve. Amazing animals.

    An American white pelican trying to take away a trout which a double-crested cormorant caught for breakfast.

    This is actually one frame from a 4K video captured with a Nikon Z6 and 600mm/f4 lens.

  11. @Sandy Vongries, he's looking fat and healthy. Not much of a rack, but would make good eating!

    Douglas Herr's magpie is not visible to me again, on Google Chrome. Looks like it is a browser issue. The image shows fine on FireFox, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari.
  14. Same for me.

    Now I have tried Google Chrome on three different platforms. It works fine on my iPhone, but not on either Windows 10 or Mac.
