Readers’ wildlife photographs

Why Evolution Is True

The tank is running low again, so if you have good photos (and by “good,” I mean photos of the quality comparable to those that regularly appear here), by all means send them to me.

Today we have two photos by a new contributor, reader Helen Iwanik, who photographed these mangrove tree crabs (Aratus pisonii) in Florida. These are aroboreal crabs that mainly eat leaf scrapings, though they will eat animal matter when they can get it:

And here’s a photograph from reader Diana MacPherson; unfortunately, I’ve lost the notes, but I’m hoping that either she or another reader can identify it:

Finally, reader Keira McKenzie sends a bee and a flower. The bee is unidentified, the flower is a coral gum blossom, Eucalyptus torquata, native to a small patch in Western Australia, cultivated elsewhere.
