The American Pelecinid Wasp (Pelecinus polyturator) aka "a flying #nope " looks a lot more scary than it actually is. The stinger, or #ovipositor , which is harmless to humans, is so long because it needs to lay eggs on scarab beetle grubs that are burrowed underground. 😱 . #nationalaudubonsociety #hogisland #auduboncamp #audubonsociety #maine #mainecoast #mainething #visitmaine #mainetourism #mainelife #insectagram #insects #insectsofinstagram #insectlovers #entomology #naturephotography #nature #hymenoptera #wasp #parasite #grub #pelecinidwasp #coleoptera #beetle
“A long-legged heron with long neck and beak, set out for a stroll by the bank of a creek...” Having tons of fun with this nature words project.

The Japanese Beetle (Popillia japonica) is an invasive species that is often seen eating away leaves and flowers of many species of plants. At @hogislandaudubon , they are reluctantly super common, but make an easy example to study #herbivores in action. . #nationalaudubonsociety #hogisland #auduboncamp #audubonsociety #maine #mainecoast #mainething #naturephotography #nature #invasivespecies #insects #insectagram #insectsofinstagram #insectlovers #entomology #beetle #coleoptera #scarabidae #scarabbeetle
Happened to finally download all my pictures today from this year (783 to be exact 😱) and came across this little guy, photographed in Denali. No clue what he is but I sure love the color! 🐤🌲 . . . #nature #naturetherapy #naturephotography #bird #denali #denalinationalpark #alaska #alaskalife #floraandfauna #birdwatching #nationalaudubonsociety #warbler #flycatcher #birdsofinstagram #wildbird #explore #camp #camplife #hike #trail #enjoy
The Weitz & Luxemburg Building at 700 Broadway, former home to the National Audubon Society, was declared a New York City Landmark in 1999. Designed in the late 1800’s by architect, George B. Post, who designed the New York Stock Exchange and some of America’s first skyscrapers, it was renovated as New York’s first “green building” a hundred years later. When built it was called the Audubon House, the former headquarters of the National Audubon Society. Weitz & Luxemberg was established in 1986. #700broadway #nationalaudubonsociety #architects #noho #newyork #newyorklandmarkbuildings #nycarchitecture #nyciconicbuildings #lovenewyork #taxis #newyorktaxis #viewsfromanyctaxi

The Intertidal Exploration at @hogislandaudubon Family Camp, encountered some really cool snails! . From left to right: the invasive Common Periwinkle (Littorina littorea), the predatory Dog Whelk (Nucella lapillus), and the native Smooth Periwinkle (Littorina obtusa). 🐚🏖️❤️ . #nationalaudubonsociety #hogisland #auduboncamp #audubonsociety #maine #mainething #mainecoast #mainetourism #visitmaine #mainelife #shell #snail #naturephotography #nature #explore #periwinkle #whelk #gastropod #mollusk #beach #lowtide #shore #shorelife
This Great Egret is fishing off the dock at the north boat ramp. 🚤 Interesting fact, the Great Egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society, one of the oldest environmental organizations in North America. Audubon was founded to protect birds from being killed for their feathers. Great Egrets were hunted nearly to extinction for their plumes in the late nineteenth century. #greategret #smallfry #fish #hydrilla #egret #feathers #nationalaudubonsociety #fairfiledlakestatepark #tpwd #wildlife #nature #aquaticlife #freshwater #ecosystem #bird #waterfowl #naturephotography #picturethisflsp #protecttheenvironment #texas #stateparks #protectedwildlife #aquaticplants #texasbirds
"Sharing the Shore" I had to share one more photo to the sequence of photos that I took of the Little Blue Heron Mom with her Juvenile, (whom I have appropriately named Clamper! ) Out of them all this one has to be my favorite, as I captured them both in a quiet moment after they had their frenzy with one another.

Bird on edge.
Canadian Bunchberry aka Creeping Dogwood (Cornus canadensis) litters the ground at different parts of @hogislandaudubon. Unlike it's relatives, it does not grow like a tree, but the leaves and fruit are super similar. . #nationalaudubonsociety #hogisland #auduboncamp #audubonsociety #maine #mainething #mainecoast #mainetourism #visitmaine #mainelife #naturephotography #nature #plants #dogwood #bunchberry #cornaceae #botany #botanizing
Babe on the beach. An intimate portrait of a minutes old Snowy Plover on the dunes of Anna Maria Island. The Plover nests are very vulnerable because they are built right on top of the sand dunes. This nest only had 3 eggs. All of the eggs hatched and all three hatchlings were up and running within minutes of each other. #snowyplover #snowyplovers #hatchling #babybirds #annamariaisland #gulfofmexico #cynthiaherrickphotography #visualdesigner #babyanimals #audubon #nationalaudubonsociety #natgeo #natgeoyourshot
This precious honey #chestnutbackedchickadee hit our bedroom window hard this morning. At first, he appeared to possibly have a broken neck and one wing, wasn’t moving at all, but I held him and talked to him, and he woke up! I gave him drops of water from my thumb, which he willingly drank. OMGoodness, my heart. After about 15-20 minutes, he flew! Around and around the bathroom until finally landing on my finger. I let him go out back and am pretty sure he’s going to make it! • A few videos and photos. Such a honey! So many long stares into my eyes, right into my soul. We connected. We did. ❤️ #animalsknowlove #oregoncoast #oregonshores #birdlover #nationalaudubonsociety #audubonsocietyofportland #ip_birds #birdlove #naturelover
Taking on the barred owl! This species of bird inhabits everywhere from the united states to southern canada. It likes to hunt for anything from small rodents to other bird species. If you happen to be lucky enough to see one in the wild you can listen to it’s unique call of ‘’who cooks for you” repeated several times. I was lucky enough to work with this bird at shavers creek center near penn state.

One day while I was observing the wrens before they flew the nest, I noticed this sparrow hanging around. She would sit on the fence below the nest with her head cocked listening to the babies chirp for their mom. Sometimes she would fly up and perch on the gourd. She never interfered with momma wren. I know some birds sabotage other nests but she never did anything harmful. She just seemed curious or concerned. It was nothing I'd ever witnessed before. #birdsofbethlehem ##bethlehembackyardsforwildlife #igbethlehem #pawildlife #nationalaudubonsociety #nwf #sparrow #lehighvalley #cornelllabofornithology

In the right lighting some juvenile flatfish like this sole become translucent. Note the backbone in the center and the internal organs on the left of the fish. Translucent or not it makes good food for a pigeon guillemot chick. #natgeoyourshot #flatfish #sole #translucent #fish #pigeonguillemot #guillemot #seabird #seabirds #pacificseabirdgroup #birdsofinstagram #wildlife_shots #audubonsociety #natgeo #oregonnw #traveloregon #pnwbirds #nationalaudubonsociety #oregon #oregoncoast #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #coastexplorer #pnw #pacificnorthwest

Despite the red tide. I enjoyed seeing these guys this morning
Our baby wrens left the nest last week. They are adorable ...and pretty good fliers, too! They are still hanging around & I love to hear them chattering away. #wrens #bethlehembackyardsforwildlife #nationalaudubonsociety #pawildlife #lehighvalley #igbethlehem
Haven't got pics of the birds lately. But the evening light was nice ☺. #pnwscenery #pnwbirds #nikond3200 #nikonphotography #birdphotography #blackeyedjunco #nationalaudubonsociety
