  1. This is the additional weekly image thread for the Nature Forum. While images posted to this thread should still be nature in theme, it may contain a small amount of human-made objects and therefore less restricted than the Monday in Nature threads. Please see this discussion for more details: Alternative weekly thread in Nature forum

    Each participant please post no more than just one image per weekly thread.

    Not much happening this time of year at the Bear River MBR. While the sun was still well above the horizon, the light was very filtered, flat, and weak, with a strange tinge, due to smoke blowing in from wildfires in California.

    Hmm... I can make it a
    zoology class. I am a
    Great Ape, but I don't
    know what species I
    belong to... pongo abelii
    or pongo pygmaeus...

  11. Thank you, Luis. I would never have guessed a camel. I did not have an idea of the size of the head due to the close crop (which works very well). OTOH, when I showed the image to my wife, she identified it immediately.
