It is the middle of July. The truck thermometer says 92 degrees with the usual Georgia humidity. Deer season is still two months away. Turkey season has been closed for two months. What is there for a hunter to do? Over the last nine years, I feel that I have found a solution to the lull between hunting seasons that allows me to spend more time in the woods and at the same time makes me a better hunter. My solution is to get out and hunt with my camera.
I purchased my first zoom camera when our daughter was born. Little did I know how much this decision would also impact my hunting. At first, it was the typical photos we all take as our children grow before our eyes. Then I started to notice the butterflies in the flower garden we created for our daughter, so I started to take pictures. The next thing I knew, I was researching and seeking to photograph the butterflies of north Georgia. As that list neared completion, I began to search for my next challenge.
