With some big help from Jim Botta, we have put together another huge collection of wildlife photos and videos from the Long Island Wildlife Photography group this week.  This week’s cover shot goes to Brian Doherty with a Northern Waterthrush in some fantastic light.

As you will see in the photos below, it looks like the Monarch Butterfly migration is in full swing.  If you have never seen this in person, head to the south shore beaches this weekend and check them out!

Also be sure to check out some more incredible videos on Page 8 including a Hognose Snake eating a toad from Natalie Ann and a Monarch Caterpillar changing to Chrysalis from Kerry O’Brien Lukowski.
