Purchase Scrub Jay with Acorn by Paul Rebmann Artist Interview

February 2014 marked the start of the Nature Photography by Paul Rebmann blog with the following post.
After communicating only electronically up until then, I finally met Florida children's book author Christopher Tozier in person when we both attended the fifth annual Florida Scrub Jay Festival at Lyonia Environmental Center & Preserve. Christopher Tozier is the author of Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus, the award-winning, middle-grade fantasy series set in the wilds of central Florida... read more
Purchase Don’t Mess With My Chicks by Paul Rebmann Great Horned Owls

In 2007 my image of a Great Horned Owl titled "Don't Mess With My Chicks" won 3rd Place in the Florida Birds! category of the Orange Audubon (Orlando Florida) Kit & Sidney Chertok Nature Photography Contest. The March post was the story about how I made this photograph.
Purchase Sunset Pines by Paul Rebmann ...Years Ago Today

In April the blog post was all about my '...years ago today' tweets. On almost every day of 2014, I tweeted @WildFLPhoto a photograph that I had taken on that date in some previous year, and in one case, on that day. These were all images that were made during the past 13 years. There were 24 dates that I had no previous photos for. This included film and slide photographs taken with a Minolta manual focus SLR and more recently digital images. The digital photography started with one year using a Canon Powershot A300, followed by various models of Canon digital SLR cameras, plus some with iPhones. Read more about this exercise and why I found it beneficial to my photography in the April bog post.
Brown Velvet by Paul Rebmann Butterflies and Brown Velvet

My 'years ago today' tweet of this Carolina Satyr butterfly photograph lead to my learning that some of the other photos I thought were also Carolina satyrs were actually intricate satyrs, a newly described species of the same genus. As a result some of my photos of both butterfly species were included in two scientific papers on these butterflies. Read the May blog post for more on how this came about.
Paul Rebmann selfie with his award winning Homer & Bart Chertok Photo Contest

Every year the Orange Audubon Society conducts the Kit & Sidney Chertok Florida Native Nature Photography Contest To promote interest and concern for preserving the native fauna and flora of Florida, and to encourage nature photography and enjoyment and appreciation of our natural wonders. A number of my photographs have won various awards in previous years, and in 2009 'Heading Out to Sea' of a loggerhead sea turtle hatching won first place in the Beyond Birds! category. In 2014 I was asked to be one of three judges for the contest, which was an honor and a rewarding experience. Read more about it in the June blog post.

Purchase Fairchild Oak by Paul Rebmann The Fairchild Oak

The October blog post featured one of my images of a local landmark The Fairchild Oak and included a bit of the history of this magnificent live oak tree.
Purchase Cooter on Alligator Log by Paul Rebmann Kayak Photography
