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!


  1. I love the photo of the What an amazing photograph.
    The best part is spending time in nature with those you love, isn't it!

  2. Thank you Carol. It was one of my favorites from that day. I totally agree, spending time outdoors with those I love is the best part by far!

  4. Sandy, I really enjoyed looking at your photos. They certainly show the beauty and application of nature.
