|PHOTOGRAPHY PLANS FOR 2018|
Storm and winter landscapes in the western United States including locations in several out of the way state parks and BLM Lands. New wildlife coverage, including dragonflies and damselflies in the western and southwestern United States and several species of poison arrow frogs.
|NEW WILDLIFE SPECIES COVERAGE
Added several new dragonfly and damselfly species and significantly expanded existing species coverage. A newly discovered Spiketail Dragonfly cordulegaster ssp. which is just being described in the scientific literature, has been added to my Dragonflies whose Common Name start with S-Z image gallery. UPDATE: This species has been named Sarracenia spiketail cordulegaster sarracenia, and is now described in the scientific literature-you can read the abstract at Cordulegaster sarracenia abstract. Also added images of The Masked Clubskimmer Dragonfly brechmorhoga pertinax species from Arizona. The masked clubskimmer has only been seen twice before in the United States and never before in Arizona. Also added images of The Slender Clubskimmer Dragonfly brechmorhoga praecox species from Arizona. The slender clubskimmer is also new to Arizona. They have also been added to my Dragonflies whose Common Name starts with A-E image gallery.
|Also added images of the Straight-tipped Ringtail Dragonfly erpetogomphus elaps, to my Dragonflies whose Common Name starts with S-Z image gallery. This is only the second time this spectacular odonate species has been recorded in the United States.|
| Added several new species of very colorful eyelash and African bush vipers, like this recently discovered Broadley's Bush Viper atheris broadleyi, to my Venomous Snakes image gallery.
|I have added a new gallery of Tropical Frogs which include several species of very colorful Poison Arrow Frogs.|
|Added several new songbird species, including the Black-vented Oriole icterus weglari, which is very rare in the United States, to my Songbirds whose Common Names start with N-S image gallery.|
