Nature Photography - Done Naturally

Photo of the Week - Archive

Starting in March of 2017, I started to place a "photo of the week" on my front page.  Life gets in the way at times, and the "photo of the week" may end up lasting more than a week at times, but I did want to represent what are some of my 1) favorite photos, 2) best photos (not necessarily the same as favorite!), and 3) recent photos.  Here's an archive with links to previous photos of the week.
