Nature Photography Day - June 15

Nothing stops me when it comes to photographing the natural world. Wearing a skirt does not stop me if I am out and about and see something interesting to "shoot" :-) Rubber boots are always in my vehicle. This particular area was a bog and was very wet. I've been photographing the rare Orchids "Showy Lady Slippers" for over 20 years and they always bloom around Father's Day. 













Here are some ways to celebrate Nature Photography Day. 

  • Learn even more about the natural history of your environment: plants, wildlife, and land.
  • Encourage the creative spirit among your family and friends. Tell them about books and online resources with suggestions on how to photograph flowers, birds, and more.
  • Know that your photos can be invaluable, telling vital stories about nature. Find something that detracts from the natural world, showing images about how human beings sometimes adversely affect the environment.
  • Remind your colleagues about Nature Photography Day and how images have been used to protect the natural world. If you have a website or blog, spread the news there, too.
  • Even before June 15, immerse yourself in the legacy of nature photography by reading about the work of naturalists as well as pioneers in the profession.
  • Build vibrant memories by picking something close to home that you’ve never photographed before. Then make plans to photograph that subject or scene every June 15. Enjoy the pilgrimage!
  • Create a scavenger hunt for birds, butterflies, insects, rocks, and other natural sights likely to be close to you. But don’t just list what you’ve found. Take photos!
  • Finally, ask yourself how your images can help to bring positive changes to the Earth. After all, it’s our common home.
Wishing all the Fathers a Happy day on Sunday. Joe chose to do a hike on Saturday, and have a celebration with family on Sunday.

  6. All great photos, Debbie! Love those gorgeous Lady Slippers! I always wear boots when I have to go inside of weeds or dense garden areas as the bugs and spiders always find me. Don't think I could do a skirt though as I'm sure the critters would find that bare skin underneath - LOL.
