From one place.....

I recently finished reading The Forest Unseen by biologist David Haskell.  In this book, David observes one square meter of forest in Tennessee for an entire year.  With a biologist's eye and a poet's pen he reveals the hidden world of this little patch of forest, and is perhaps one of the best nature books I have come across.


Reading this book gave me the idea of trying something similar.  I frequently stroll through Greensprings trail and find myself drawn to one area in particular - a boardwalk area that traverses a beaver pond.  Regardless of what time of day I visit, there is usually some sort of wildlife activity.  So, I have decided to spend one year observing this little patch of nature.  I've always had much better luck photographing wildlife from a single location versus hiking around.  I've always been a firm believer in letting animals come to you.  Should be fun!
