Calling all photographers!

The North American Nature Photography Association has held a special event on this day every year for the last decade. June 15 is Nature Photography Day, a day to get outside with your camera and capture the beauty of wild flora and fauna around you.

NANPA states that they created the day "to promote the enjoyment of nature photography, and to explain how images have been used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide."

Interested in getting outside but need some tips or inspiration? Check out these articles:

You can add your name to those participating in the day via the Facebook event page and you can show off the photos you capture there. And of course, we want to see your work too! Would you like your photo to be featured as Photo of the Day? Join our Flickr group and add your photos to the pool!
