JANE ~ Just Another Nature Enthusiast ~
An acronym for me… JANE
🌲Nature is all the animals, plants, and other things in the world that are not made by people, and all the events and processes that are not caused by people.
🌞An enthusiast is a person who is very interested in a particular activity or subject and who spends a lot of time on it.
📷🦋A Photo-naturalist is a person who studies plants, animals, insects, and other living things and tells about them through photographs and words.
I see myself as a curious mix of these three concepts. I enjoy creating images with my Nikon D500 and D850 cameras and collection of Tamron and Nikon lenses. My mission is to use my photographs as a way to inspire others in finding their connections with Nature. And… once those connections are discovered to pay them forward to create a chain of Nature knowledge and enthusiasm.
The goal? To help grow the number of people who better understand, appreciate, care about, and take positive action to protect the beautiful planet we all depend upon for life, Earth.
