I never head outside without my camera. On a typical hike, it's common for me to take dozens, even hundreds of photos. Sometimes they're wildlife (my favorite subject). Sometimes they're interesting examples I can use to illustrate an idea (a lot of the photos in Backyard Woodland are my own). Sometimes they're just pretty things or scenes that catch my eye.
I'm no pro by any means, but I've found that images are often the best way to get across just how captivating nature is. I've posted some of my favorite shots on this page in the hopes that they'll inspire you to get outside and see some of this wonder for yourself.
