With big help from Jim Botta, we put together a huge gallery of just some of the photos and videos posted to the Long Island Wildlife Photography page this week.  The group continues to grow and is about to surpass the 14,000 member mark shortly.  If you enjoy local wildlife action, feel free to join.  The photos you see in this weekly feature are just a fraction of what is posted on a daily basis.

This week we have almost as much action in the water as on land with Bottlenose Dolphins, Common Dolphins, Mola Mola, a Hammerhead Shark, and a leaping Humpback Whale with a New York City backdrop captured by Jim Botta featured on the cover.

We also have a bunch of new videos from Natalie Ann on the last page.  If you have a few minutes be sure to scroll through all 9 pages!
