As a Wildlife Photographer, I’m excited to share with you today, March 20th, the first day of spring. While it may not feel like spring here in Arkansas, where it’s currently 28 degrees, I wanted to showcase a photo I took that truly embodies the beauty of this season.
In this picture, you’ll see a beautiful Whitetail Fawn kissing a delicate flower. This photo captures the essence of new beginnings and the renewal of life that spring brings to the natural world. As a Wildlife Photographer, I feel grateful to be able to witness and document these precious moments.
Spring is a season of change, and it’s a crucial time for many wildlife species. This is the time when many animals, like bears and groundhogs, awaken from their winter slumber and begin searching for food. It’s also the time when many migratory birds return to their nesting grounds.
Additionally, the first day of spring, also known as the Vernal Equinox, is a significant event in astronomy. On this day, the length of day and night are almost equal, marking the start of longer days and shorter nights in the Northern Hemisphere.
In conclusion, while it may not feel like spring just yet, there’s no denying the excitement and new life that this season brings to the natural world. As a wildlife photographer, I’m always inspired to capture these moments and share them with the world.
