Wild animals — as charismatic as an eagle or as plain as a toad — frequently become the subjects of news stories.

So I have consulted the Fish and Wildlife Service digital image library (images.fws.gov) several times when I needed high-resolution files for an animal infographic.

The searchable library includes photos and drawings of birds, plants, invertebrates and endangered animals and habitats. But my favorite collection remains a series of paintings by wildlife artist Duane Raver that the government commissioned in the 1970s. Two examples are shown above.

Some of the images open in Photoshop as incredibly detailed 21-megabyte files.
