  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

    Are you new to this thread? We post one image per week.
    Good Morning,
    I hope you've had a great week. We'll get started with some soft curly seed heads from Clematis virginiana. They are always a pleasant find even though the seeds often hang on the vines well into winter. Sounds like Monday in Nature.......always a pleasant find. Have a great day everyone.

  2. Snowdrops in flower - spring is coming, somewhen

  3. Staying with the plant theme: brown oaks, and maybe the first hint of snow-covered tall mountains in the evening light. Clouds - snow ? We could never quite agree that evening.

    I had one of those special days yesterday, 9 owls of two different species, one a lifer for me. Cap that off with a Painted Turtle (Indiana in February?) and it was a great day to enjoy a bit of the natural world.

  12. Exceptionally good day for reflections at the wetlands yesterday during high tide. Overcast with the sun at just the right angle.The sideways "v" forms at the top of the picture is scum and reflection which had clung to pickleweed as the tide slowly receded. Any disturbance of the water, no matter how slight, is enough to break the tension. The scum doesn't pop so much as disappear, there one second, gone the next.

  19. Believe it or not, we really have winter in Arizona - some parts, anyway. This is a three-shot panorama of Mingus Mountain overlooking Cottonwood.
    And, yes, it's a dry snow...
