  1. Nature is sometimes mysterious but never, apparently, as much as in a salt marsh. I hadn't been out to the wetlands for several months and have no idea what this photo "is" except as a detail of a larger area several square yards in size of the same stuff. The white may be naturally-occurring gypsum. Mysterious or not, what do you have for MiN this week? PN-abs-4142.jpg

    I interrupted this painted turtle as she was seeking the perfect place to deposit her eggs.
    I used a D800E and a 105mm macro lens.

  11. Some bug porn this week. Found these two in my asparagus patch and got a photo to aid identification. They're spotted asparagus beetles (Crioceris duodecimpunctata) , which my book says do little damage and only feed on the seeds.

  12. Think it's safe to say that most African safari photographers do not pay much attention to the beauty of the savanna landscape. It can be quite amazing.

  13. Beautiful, delicate shrooms, Rick. Do you know what they are?

    Excellent capture of the male goldfinch, Wayne. They and red-eyed vireos are some of the few birds still singing around our house this time of the year. In fact they are kind of incessant at this point, come to think of it.
