*** New Wildlife thread starting 7th May 2022 ***
1

It's Saturday somewhere so we can post from everywhere! Common or rare, pretty or not, let's see what you've got.

To post your pics, please reply to THIS post and change the title. Otherwise, in threaded mode, your post will appear to be a comment to another's post. We don't want to overlook your pics! Threaded mode lists posts in a hierarchy which is ideal for viewing threads like this one.

Try to limit pics to three or so and identify subjects if possible. It would be nice if you would provide location and other info others might find interesting. And do comment on others pics if so moved. Everyone is welcome to participate with any camera, any time. Lurkers and new members please join in.

When out viewing and photographing wildlife, I want all of you to be safe. I also want the wildlife to remain safe and minimally impacted by our presence.

Re: Winged Things

A nice, varied series. That sparrowhawk is most impressive!

Went paddle boarding in the Indian River Lagoon on Florida's east coast. It was a great day, but did encounter a little bit of wind. Saw more stingrays than I had ever seen before. Anyway, here are a few pics or screenshots taken with a GoPro Hero 8.

Blue crab

Atlantic stingray

Southern (?) stingray
