Ethics and Safety
My assignment was to head outdoors and take a photograph that demonstrates safety and ethics in nature. At first I was not sure what to photograph that would show an understanding of the topic. As I wandered the trails of the Runge Nature Center in Jefferson City I came across this deer. She was a distance away from me but I was able to zoom in on her and get a pretty good photo. She was looking over her shoulder and almost looked like she was saying, "I know you are there, but I'm not afraid of you."
I chose this photo because it showed that I was not disturbing the wildlife as I shared their habitats with them. It was a beautiful hot day in the Ozarks when I took the photo. My son and I had decided to take a road trip and take some photographs. We had a wonderful time wandering the trails with our cameras and took several decent photos.
I consider myself an amateur photographer at best but sometimes I get lucky and get a good shot. I really enjoy photographing nature. Dragonflies are one of my favorite insects. There are so many different varieties and colors. I also love the way they move! This photograph was also taken at the Runge Nature Center, and I thought it was also a good example of ethics and safety in nature. I love my zoom lens!
Well, enough of my ramblings and samplings. Look for my next blog soon. My next assignment is a photography scavenger hunt. I'm excited!
