Why Evolution Is True

Send in your good nature photos, please!

Today we have some nice photos from Idaho taken by Stephen Barnard; I’ve indented his commentary:

A rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) taking an unidentified insect.

A mahogany dun mayfly— last mayfly to hatch here in the fall. Common named: could be any of several species and even genera.

Great horned owl (Bubo virginianus).

Another photo of the same Great Horned Owl, warming up in the early morning sun.

Red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus)gather into large flocks before migration. They like to feed on the leftovers in the barley fields.

A bull elk (Cervus canadensis), part of a large herd with several “trophy” bulls.

A family of sandhill cranes (Grus canadensis) coexisting with a great blue heron (Ardea herodias).
