Poppin’

After its mother told it to stay put in the woods, this adorable little fawn came right up to me four or five times while I was running and seemed to say, "Are you my mother?" before leaving to be reunited with its mama in the woods across the road. I'm sure I didn't smell right. (Photographed by Jane Naliboff)

I have taken pictures of this nest under the eves of my barn at different stages. Now the birds are ready to fly out! (Bernadette Harvell)

  2. Cheez, Tomas --- we spent Wednesday over to San Pedro looking for the yellow bill, and all we found were a bunch of Blue Grosbeaks, Yellow Breasted Chats, Hooded Orioles, Abert's Towhees, and the usual guys. Your Baltimore and eastern blue are great photo shots.

  3. Nice work (or play), everyone! Especially like the dewdrops & ocean images.

  4. Wow! These photos were great and amazing! Thanks to all🙂

  5. Thanks for the great pics everyone, nice find and photo on the Yellow-billed Cuckoo Tom!

  6. The Yellow-billed Cuckoo was there again yesterday morning (Sunday) down near the lake both times if you go look for it, Steve.

  7. On the picture of "dew" on a leaf, this is actually from guttation. This is the result of root pressure and these drops come from pores in the leaf tips early in the morning.
