The Record asked readers for images of nature. Dr. Michael Bender, program director in NIGMS’s Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, sent in several bird photos shown here. He takes pictures in Rock Creek Park, at Hains Point and at Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac, located on Columbia Island.
