When the NIH Record asked readers to share images of nature, two photographers took the assignment to new levels. Here are just a few of the pictures we received.
Dr. Michael Bender, program director in the NIGMS Division of Genetics and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, sent a “fall migration” series he took near Riley’s Lock and the Great Falls Visitor Center on the C&O Canal. Over the last year, he also shared several images from McKee Beshers Wildlife Management Area in Montgomery County. He takes pictures in Rock Creek Park, at Hains Point and at Lyndon Baines Johnson Memorial Grove on the Potomac, located on Columbia Island.
Dr. Deborah Henken, program officer at NICHD, sent us images from the Ottauquechee River in Hartford County, Vt., Great Seneca Highway and Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, Md., and most recently, a series heralding the first signs of spring.
