Starting a 365 Project

I just thought about starting one of these yesterday, and I figured, Hey, why not? After all, a lot of others are doing them, and I have this swanky domain I recently purchased that I could use for it. So it was decided: Badger Photo will be my 365 (technically 366) project for 2016. So, what are the rules? Simple, they are:

  • I must photograph at least one subject every day in 2016, regardless of equipment, lighting conditions, or personal mood.
  • I don't have to upload my images right away, but they should be put online within a week at the latest.
  • I should limit my photos to just the best one, but there will be outings to the local bird preserve and vacations that may require more than a single image.
  • Location data is recommended for all photos outside of home. I should carry my GPS tracker.

Simple enough, right?

Let's start the project by wrapping up 2015 with some of my best wildlife images from the year.
