I am in Maine right now but that didn’t stop Jim Botta from helping put this week’s best of Long Island Wildlife Photography together.  The group submitted another fantastic set of images from Sea, Land, and Air with the highlight some fantastic Bald Eagle action as they continue their incredible comeback.

Paul Peluso gets the cover shot with a Humpback Whale close up.  This is just a preview of an incredible encounter he had with multiple Humpback Whales on Thursday, stay tuned later in the week for his full story.

Natalie Ann continues to amaze with her wildlife videography, make sure you check out her videos on the last page.
