I missed last week but thanks to Jim Botta, we have compiled two weeks’ worth of some of the best images posted by members of the Long Island Wildlife Photography group.  Some highlights include a Short Billed Dowitcher, Brown Pelicans, Scarlet Tanager, Great Crested Flycatcher, Black Vulture, Spotted Sandpiper, and a nice collection of Whales, Dolphins and Sharks.

This week’s cover shot goes to Fred Fahrbach with a great close-up of a Bald Eagle in flight.
