Favorite Photos of 2021

Before we get too far into 2022, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite photos from 2021. I take thousands of photos every year, so it can be pretty difficult to narrow things down, but there are usually a handful of photos I'm particularly happy with or that are just memorable for one reason or another.

Some photos made it to my favorites because they represented a departure from my usual style.

Carolina wren
Usually I prefer natural settings for bird photos, but I loved the color and texture of this weathered wood

Palm fronds

Sometimes my favorite photos aren't the best technically or artistically, but they mean a lot to me because they marked a memorable moment or encounter.

Whitetail buck
This one wins for heart-stopping photo moment of the year, a stare-down from a majestic whitetail buck

Best wishes for 2022!
