Jerusalem has too many people, too many cars, too many diesel fumes, too much pollution, and way too much noise, but in spite of all that, living among us are all manner of animals and plants that are easily overlooked. I am starting to photograph whatever I can find with my digital camera and telescope, and am slowly learning how to do it.
Here is what I have so far:
|Falcons (Eurasian Hobbies) in Talbiye|
|Palestine Sunbirds in Talbiye|
|Valley of the Gazelles near Giv'at Mordechai|
|Wild Rose-ringed Parakeet Flock in the German Colony|
|Long-eared Owls by the Knesset|
|Karen Benzian's Owl photos|
|Palm Dove Eggs and Chicks|
|Egyptian Fruit Bats|
|Sara Deutch's Bat photos|
|Indian Crested Porcupines by the Knesset|
|Jerusalem Trees New!|
|And outside of Jerusalem...|
There are other obvious animals not yet on these pages, for example, the hedgehogs (קיפודים) that are all over the place, and the Lesser Kestrels (בַּז אָדוֹם) in Musrara, and I look forward to photographing them when I can.
