Our lab has been privileged to work with some beautiful animals in some amazing places. Below are some images for your enjoyment. Any images from Duncan Irschick are free to use without fee. We only ask that you first contact Duncan Irschick, and that you properly attribute him. Please note that for any image where the photographer is not listed as Duncan Irschick, that person should be contacted prior to any use. If no photographer is listed, the image is by Duncan Irschick. We also include some videos of animals performing some amazing athletic feats. Finally, our work has also been featured in many media outlets, and we include some of the videos, as well as others produced at UMass Amherst, and elsewhere.
