I participated in a year long scavenger hunt with the Nature Photo Club of the Wilderness Center, Wilmot Ohio. There were 15 captures on the list. You could submit all that you could but the idea was not to just grab record photos. Captures were to be “use the principles of good photography that capture viewers attention.” The only photo I did not have was of a night sky.
The irony of it all for me was that I was unable to attend the meeting to see everybody’s selection. So instead you get to have a peek at my collection from the natural world as a part of this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge – Peek

All impressive – but LOVE the leaf and the owl!
I’m partial to those two as well. And both hikes linger in my thoughts as memorable.
A wonderful collection.
Thank you very much 🙂
Some wonderful shots there, especially the owl and the squirrel and the lake at sunrise.
Thank you George. Each was a gift it’s moment to hang onto!
These are truly wonderful! I hate it when I miss the review to see others’ efforts and to see their reaction to mine :-). I’m headed out right now to do exactly that !
Enjoy! The time I took with my grandson was well worth my missing out.
Nicely captured. 😊
Thank you. Truly appreciated.

Wonderful, and I love the idea of a photo scavenger hunt. My favorites are the wasp and the sunrise. The leaf is pretty terrific too.
There’s a favorite for everyone. The hunt helps you’re observation focus. While seeking one subject you most often come away with another 🙂
Fantastic set of photos!!
Thank you 🙂
Thank you. The hunt meant I always had something to look for, a lot of fun.
Thank you. A rewarding experience with some nice captured moments.
Pleased to have come upon your wonderful photography. Very skillful captures of some of the wonders of nature. A beautiful peek into your hiking environment. ❤
Thank you, your very kind. Beauty and expression is to be found where we live, if we are content enough to look or it.
What a fun idea for photography and the photos are a nice peek into it!
Its nice to have a focus of things of look for, which leads to so many other opportunities.
You are so talented! You have a good eye. Love the leaf on the water.
Your very kind, thank you.
An outstanding collection WM! (aka William?) I was trying to choose a favourite but I like them all!
Thank you. It’s was nice not to have to select just one photo. Although, there were a few left behind…
So they missed the “rapture”?
I like the idea of this ‘scavenger hunt, and the photographs you took a lot. I find your images captivating and inspiring. A joyous connection to nature.
The light on the owl, in its eye, on its beak and on the branch seem like a perfect, frozen moment in time.
The composition, colors, choice of focus in the mushrooms with their glistening texture is wonderful. A sense of them reflecting each other.
And the turtle! It appears ancient as it emerges from the earth with sprinkles of her greenness.
I delight in you having posted these photos. Thank you
It was fun keeping an eye out for the chosen subjects. Thank you for for candid commentary. It’s always nice to hear what others see.
An ingenious idea, and your pieces are excellent. The sunrise mist is outstanding. Thanks for visiting.
Thank you. Your input it greatly appreciated.
Beautiful photographs! I am partial to mushrooms and squirrels so those two are my favorites.
Thanks for dropping in. Glad you could enjoy
