Five Favorite Nature Photographs of 2012

As we celebrate the beginning of a new year, we look back at some of the most magnificent and arresting nature images captured in 2012. After much deliberation I was able to narrow it down to my five favorite photographs, which I have shared below. Enjoy.  

Fall colors and the sunlit web of a labyrinthine orb weaver spider created an interesting mosaic in Fredericksburg, Va. (Dave Ellis/The Free Lance-Star via Associated Press) Surface melt water rushed along the surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet through a supra-glacial stream channel, southwest of Ilulissat. Polar ice sheets are now melting three times faster than in the 1990s, and that's added less than half an inch to already rising global sea levels, a new giant scientific study says. The acceleration of the melting, especially in Greenland, has ice scientists worried. (Ian Joughin/Associated Press)Seagulls were silhouetted against the sun on a mild afternoon in Boston.
