    Default The natural world

    I thought this title would suit our needs.

    This is the photo I'm most proud of. Half a second later it was gone.



    I live five minutes walk from the canal so in summer I take my camera with me whenever I go out.

    You should be proud of that, it's a beautiful dragonfly and a superb photograph.

    Nice idea for a thread Sospiro, I will definately be calling in!

    A wildlife thread?



    Barred Owl

    Don't remember who took this picture, either me or my mom. Took it right outside our window.

    Okay, let's see if I've figured out how to upload pictures. Here's a duck, hopefully.

    Let's try this again.

    This mallard is in the pond next to my school's music building. Mallards aren't terribly exciting, but I like the reflections.

    Here's a clouded leopard I spotted on one of my archeological expeditions down the Amazon.



    Sorry - just kidding! He's at the Nashville Zoo. I must have been remembering browsing Amazon Books once. Someday I'd like to paint him. I mean a picture of him. He's an adolescent they say, and will get a little bigger.

    What do you feed him? He looks so well nourished. The lucky one to live on your backyard ...

    Great photos!

    I love the clouded leopard. If that's a kitten - I wouldn't like to meet him when he's all grown up.

    In UK grey squirrels are regarded as vermin but I still like them.

    Meaghan - yes Mallards are common but doesn't mean they're somehow 'less' important.

    Agatha - wish I could take photos like that - stunning.

    The only place I know of with a large/active population of red squirrels is at Formby Point, not too far from here, on the coast about 15 miles north of Liverpool - but I also love the sweet grey variety! It seems they are bullies and terrorise their red cousins, but we get a few in the garden and they are great fun, though my bird-feeders have to be made squirrel-proof otherwise they also grab all the seeds and the nuts! The photos are stunning, I really must contribute a couple though it's a very high standard to try and match!!

    HAHAHA! Peanuts. This picture was taken actually 2-3 years ago, but this same squirrel is still living in our yard, we've been feeding it all these years. Females usually stay in one place, and the males roam around. We have a lot of oak trees in our yard, so that's why they live here.
