    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.

  3. ...And God said (after he had already created countless colorful wildlife animals): "I feel like making some black and white graphic designs." And so the zebras came to life. ;)

    Had intended this closer to Halloween, since it looks like
    Devil Horns to me !!

    Reminds me of images from Muybridge's Zoopraxiscope, for some reason.

  7. Grey-necked wood rail. The loud call of these small hen-sized birds is very much like a donkey braying. For some reason, a lot of the birds down here in Uruguay have red eyes.

  9. With a little added contrast and saturation, this fogbow became visible. DSC_0979_out.jpg
     
  10. Do not touch this hairy vine because it's Poison Ivy and just as toxic without it the leaves.

  11. Bill, I believe your "Anhinga profile" is actually a Cormorant. Compare with Shun's opening image. Anhingas have a straight, spear like beak. Still, a nice image.

    Tony, you have a outcrop of Armillaria. I can't see if they have a ring or not on the stem (stipe), so I won't go beyond genus. You have a few species in your area including A. oystoyae. That is the species of the "Humongous Fungus" in Malheur National Forest in Oregon. It is currently the largest organism (in area) in the world. Careful where you tread, it's coming to get you.:)


    Yepper, I can attest to that.

    Thanks for the ID, Laura. I have heard of the fungus - and have no intention of going to Oregon. :eek:

    Must admit I wondered about Bill's image too, but never having seen Anhinga, I did not feel confident enough to query it.
