A Nature Photographer’s Year

In spring and fall I often turn my camera’s focus on birds, but during the summer I like to photograph wildflowers and wildlife. Oftentimes, the wildlife would be overlooked by most people, so it helps to know where and when to look. Since our garden is a certified wildlife habitat I don’t have to stray far from home to capture great images. I use these images to educate the public about the natural world during my presentations. Hopefully, by seeing nature’s beauty they will want to protect it. Here is a small sampling of images I took in our yard:
