*Joey and William will be guests here on the blog as they document our Nature Challenge journey for 2016.

The Challenge:  Using any kind of camera, seek out 3 different categories of nature from these categories: 1. reptiles and amphibians, 2. birds, 3. mammals, 4. bugs and insects, 5. landscapes, 6. plants.  Label the photos with the category and the location.
