Weekly Photography Assignment: Garden Wildlife

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 112: Garden Wildlife

Our theme this week is Garden Wildlife. Even in the most urban areas, gardens can create miniature sanctuaries for nature. We’d like you to show us what wildlife you can find in your garden. Whether it’s a bird on the feeder or a macro shot of an insect, we can’t wait to see your photos! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Habitat. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winner is Jola Charlton with her image of a young white-tailed deer against a backdrop of snowy mountains. By including the habitat around the deer in the shot, Jola gives us further insight into the day to day life of the fawn and the harsh conditions it has to face. Great job Jola!
