  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.

    This one really is a Ceratiomyxa fruticulosa slime mold, but not the porioides type. The largest of the rosettes is about 4 mm in diameter.

    Leslie, thanks for starting the thread.

    This female bald eagle was trying to break a branch to help build her nest. Unfortunately for her, she wasn't successful and had to find branches elsewhere.

  6. When I was visiting the Philippines several weeks ago, I happened upon a gathering in which the endangered Hawksbill Sea Turtle babies were being released to the Western Pacific Ocean - the kind of event that I saw on TV before. The eggs were hatched in an undisclosed location of the beach. Hundreds of these little guys, measuring about two inches each, were being gently dispensed from holding trays to beach sands toward the sea by eager children.

  7. It's miserable and snowy here, so here's a flashback to the warm seas of the Gulf of Panama.

  10. Black bear cub balanced high on an aspen tree. This cub was about 25 feet up walking back and forth on the branch. The mother and another cub were higher up in the tree. This was taken in a driving rainstorm which is why the cub is so wet. Taken in the Grand Tetons National Park.
