Opinion: A state away: a photographer's view of the nature and wildlife of Colorado

Colorado is a beautiful place to view the Rocky Mountains and wildlife. Being able to capture the little details in Colorado is gorgeous, from the beautiful birds that stand on the rocks to the ladybugs that crawl on the plants. Going on a walk at different parks around Colorado is an adventure each time.

Clement Park has different trails, fields and open play areas. Walking around might include seeing little insects crawling around on flowers and groundhogs peeking outside their homes, seeing who’s stopping by.

Capturing different insects along a walk at Westlands Park was challenging due to the insects blending in with their surroundings and crawling away.

Colorado is a beautiful place for capturing wildlife. Though it took multiple hours to capture these little creatures, it made the overall image better than I could ever imagine.
