The North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA) is celebration Nature Photography Day this Saturday, June 15. 2013 marks the 8th annual celebration of this event. As part of Nature Photography Day, people are encouraged to get outside and explore nature by taking pictures in their backyards, local parks, neighborhoods, or anywhere else that they can walk or bike to. You can use your fancy Nikon or Canon SLR, point-and-shoot, smart phone, or any other camera that you have. Photos can then be posted to the NANPA Nature Photography Day Facebook page - I am not on Facebook, so you won't find any of my photos there. However, here a few photos taken at a local park yesterday to inspire you to get outside and explore nature.
