Greetings All: Every year I do a competition and I have already posted that item. I also do a photographic game and this year, finding myself beset with the need to paint the exterior of my house and really work the yard back into shape, I decided to see what kind of numbers I can rack up from my central Lubbock yard.
Given the habitat available at the site, my goals are going to be pretty modest. I am shooting for 40 butterfly species, 0 amphibian species, 2 reptile species, 80 birds species, and 4 mammal species - of which I hope to photograph over 90%. This may not be as exciting as some of my previous photographic games but it will certainly be hard-fought.
Further, it will encourage me to document the success I have had with making my small, urban/suburban yard amenable to wildlife.
