Perspectives on Nature Photography


with 4 comments

This is a “housekeeping” sort of post. I’d like to remind readers who have subscribed to this column by e-mail that, as convenient as that method is, you don’t get to see the comments that people add. People have offered many good insights, and there have been plenty of questions and answers. In a case like


the comments have a lot more information than the original post, and one commenter has added a video.

In some cases, a helpful person has identified species that I wasn’t able to; a couple of examples are

A Tiny Find


Predation on the Rays of a Sunflower.

The upshot of all this is that you might want to check back from time to time to browse comments and see what new information has been added.

I’d also like to remind readers that links within a post (which may show up as colored text in the e-mail version of the post) often lead to more information on the subject. For example, in the post entitled

It was fasciation, I know

the link that appears as

Dr. T. Ombrello wrote

explains more about fasciation. Sometimes the links are tangential, as when

the classic song

in that same article lets you listen to Nat King Cole singing the song “Fascination.” As I said, tangential, but pleasant.
