For a wildlife photographer, the late summer is not too exciting. The wildlife sightings I enjoyed during the springtime are no longer with us. The fox have moved from their dens, bear cubs are quite larger than the little teddy bears Â they were in the spring. The beautiful breeding colors of the spring birds are all but gone. It is a challenge for most nature photographers at this time of year to get that perfect shot. To make matters worse, the leaves will not change for almost a month, late September to early October.
