When the yearly subscription for the National Geographic came again last year, I procrastinated about the cost. I re-subscribed, justifying I could spend an amount below $50 on things much less valuable. The photography alone is world class. And articles on remote tribal groups, sea and forest life and amazing expeditions, open the world to me.
As it is the Year of the Bird, there have been wonderful images of them. This month, the history and ornithology of falcons is interesting. I wondered whether my own photos of a small slice of Manitoba with diverse bird and animal species would be accepted. Maybe the balance between shooting wild life with a camera and a gun could be considered through hunting season.
When I listen to local seniors talk about the depletion of native species that lived in this region only 50 years ago, I hope there will be photos and articles to enjoy for future generations.
