Last Frame: Goldfinch With Snow And Buds

Last Frame: Goldfinch With Snow And Buds Photo By Jessica Nelson “It had been a pretty dry winter, which isn’t very normal for Maryland,” recalls Jessica Nelson. “In fact, we hadn’t had any measurable snow since winter had started. Then March hit, and we got snow squalls and storms every other day right before spring arrived. The birds were quite confused at the silly weather patterns we were having, and so were the trees. However, I was very happy to have captured the snowfall in early spring. I just love that the trees were sprouting some new colorful buds that looked pretty against the white snow. But the pop of the yellow goldfinch, which was morphing into his bright…

Our Position On Wildlife Baiting

Our Position On Wildlife Baiting Great wildlife photography doesn’t have to come at the cost of the animal’s well-being. Getting “the shot” is all the more rewarding when you know you’ve practiced good field ethics in the achievement. Photo by Melissa Groo. It was brought to our attention by our “Wild By Nature” columnist Melissa Groo that the photograph selected as the winner of our Assignment #347: Birds In Flight, almost certainly involved baiting of the subject snowy owl. Groo noted to us: “It’s clear to anyone who takes a closer look that it’s a baited owl. There is evidence of cloning, and there are mouse footprints in the snow. Mice that are not from a pet store typically…

Last Frame: Moody Blue

Last Frame: Moody Blue Photo By Pierre-Emmanuel Chaillon “I was on the road for a few days, enjoying the landscape and wildlife in my new home, the Northwest Territories,” explains photographer Pierre-Emmanuel Chaillon. “I was near Kakissa at this time. The day before, I saw a big bull with two females, so I got up in the middle of the night, hoping to find them again and take some pictures at dawn. It was a winning bet. “A little later, while going around the lake to find the group that had dispersed after the arrival of another male, I found one of the females again. She had escaped from both persistent males and was standing on the tip of…

Last Frame: Daydreaming

Last Frame: Daydreaming Photo By Heather Genovese “In July 2017, I had a fantastic opportunity to spend a week in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska, for an exciting photography adventure,” says Heather Genovese. “It was my first time visiting Alaska, and I immediately fell in love with the lush, pristine landscape. One of the many highlights of the trip was watching these adorable cubs run and play. They reminded me of when my siblings and I were kids. I could almost hear them say, ‘Mom, she’s picking on me!’ as they took turns pinning each other down. I was lucky enough to snap this shot as they took a very brief break from playtime to enjoy a moment of…

Last Frame: Peekaboo!

Last Frame: Peekaboo! Photo By Andy Lerner “This photo was taken off one of the black sand beaches of Sangeang Island in Indonesia at a dive site called Hot Rocks,” says underwater, wildlife and travel photographer Andy Lerner. “Sangeang is an active volcanic island with underwater steam vents bubbling up through the sand and reefs. The vents bring up minerals like sulfur, which give some of the local reef life much crazier and more vibrant colors than you’d find elsewhere. I found this bright copper-colored bubble-tipped anemone, which was a color of anemone I hadn’t seen before on Indonesian reefs. The resident anemone fish nestled in to protect itself, giving me a nice opportunity to compose this shot.” Nikon…
