June 15, 2021
Nature Photography Day is June 15th which is designated by the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) to promote the enjoyment of nature photography. Nature Photography Day is a way to explain how images are used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes both locally and globally.
How to Celebrate Nature Photography Day
NANPA encourages people worldwide to get outside and enjoy the day by taking a camera and exploring our natural world. This could be your backyard, a nearby park, a wildlife refuge, or any other place that is close by on June 15th.
Explore our natural world with your camera and find something that interest you and capture some pictures whether it is landscapes, plant life or wildlife. Then share those images on social media with this hashtag, #NaturePhotographyDay.
Other ways to celebrate Nature Photography Day is by learning about the different plant and/or wildlife species in your local area, going birding, walking some hiking trails, and even learning about nature photography and/or nature photographers.
Nature Photography Day
I would like to urge everyone to get outside and explore the nature surroundings that are near your area. I truly hope that everyone will just take a few minutes today to appreciate our natural world. I hope you will take your camera or phone and snap a few images and share it on social media as well.
Let’s celebrate or beautiful natural world on this Nature Photography Day!
Thank you for reading my Field Notes blog, and I hope you will share this post with others.
Let’s protect our wildlife and nature!
All the very best,
