June 15 is Nature Photography Day

The fifth annual Nature Photography Day will be observed on Tuesday, June 15. This day was designated by the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), Wheat Ridge, Colo., to promote the enjoyment of nature photography, and to tell how images have been used to protect plants and animals locally and worldwide.

NANPA is encouraging everyone to use a camera to explore the natural world, even in your own backyard.
