Welcome to AnimalKind!

I am so excited to announce my new blog where I can share my photos and excitement for the natural world with others.

AnimalKind is about connecting to nature and animals through the lens of the camera. It comes from respect and love for all things wild. It comes from protection for creatures who are not so wild. It is about lessons from the unexpected that the world lends us.

It is the surprise connection to a tiny spider, a deer stepping into the sunlight, spotting a lizard in the distance, a bird flying a dance around you, a family of baby rats trusting you to say hello, seeing a unique bird in the water, watching moments between chipmunks, the depth of ancient trees around you, the majestic swim of an orca, a mesmerizing pattern in the sand, and lots of squirrel fun.

It is about coming alive and filling your heart with excitement by sharing the planet with a world so beautiful. We are so lucky to experience it all if only we pay attention enough to notice. I think when we do take that time and fill the air with our appreciation; we will become aware of more encounters with our wondrous surroundings.

  1. How exciting. You pictures so far are wonderful and the species represented diverse. I'm not a great photographer but I love identifying species and discovering what makes them so wonderfully special. I look forward to more posts.
    Take care!
