It’s so easy to snap a picture. You don’t even need to carry a camera – a cell phone, tablet, or iPad will do the job just fine. If you like to take photos, you’ve probably got a growing collection of pictures of friends, family, events, and selfies. But have you ever thought of capturing wildlife with your camera, too? You’d be surprised what you can find when you’re on the lookout for wildlife.

Here are a few examples of what I’ve captured:

We saw these birds when we were visiting family in Florida. We went to a local park for a farmer’s market, and in the center of the park was a small pond. A number of these birds had made that pond their home.

We never found out what kind of tree frog this is, but it sure is little! We found this tiny frog at that same park.

I’m not sure why all these slugs climbed up the tree and made a huge ball, but they did it in our backyard.

This praying mantis was in our yard, too. We see a lot of them, as they tend to hide in the long grass near our house.

These little birds were still in their nest when a friend found them during a swim party at her house. The nest was in a young tree and low enough for us to look right inside.

You never know what you might find on the wall of a gas station. We had pulled off an interstate that ran through the mountains in Tennessee and found this moth.

I’m still trying to get a good shot of the wild turkeys that roam near our house. What wildlife have you been able to capture?
