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!
