Weekly Photography Assignment: Urban 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 encourage yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

This week we’d like you to experiment with your wildlife photography, looking for nature in unexpected places! Show us what wildlife you can find in your city, town, or even on your street. Whether you’re a seasoned nature photographer, or a total newbie, the options are endless, and we can’t wait to see what inspiring urban wildlife photos you can create.

Last week’s winner

Last week’s theme was Creative May – and our favourite image this week is:

This week’s winner is this image, captured by Tim J Nicol of “an American Robin in all of her joy late last evening in our hummingbird garden in Republic, WA.” We love the creative choice to show the movement of  water droplets coming off of the robin, and the unusual and engaging perspective we have been given of a common species. The light highlighting the droplets is also highly effective, and makes for an engaging and charismatic creative portrait! Well done, and thank you to all who entered!
