The Long Island Wildlife Photography Group passed another milestone this week, surpassing 19,000 members!  This has become a fantastic community and I want to thank everyone that helps it grow, educate, and inspire people to connect with nature and improve their photography.

Since I ran out of time last week, Jim Botta was nice enough to continue grabbing some of the best photos over the past two weeks on the 14 pages below.  Some of the highlights this week include a White Pelican, Great Horned Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, Grey Seal, Northern Bobwhites, Pied-Billed Grebe, and a Red-Headed Woodpecker to name a few.

Nancy Viscardi-Ricigliano gets this week’s cover shot with a Mute Swan landing with a beautiful Autumn background.

Feel free to share and have a great weekend!
