NHTL #WatermanBlog Reboot


After a year on hiatus, we rebooted our NHTL #WatermanBlog with two exciting new upgrades!  The first is a twist in that all image submissions must include a brief natural history writeup about the subject.  In keeping with the NHTL theme, we wish to encourage photographers to learn more about the natural history of their subjects.  Two to three sentences will suffice.  The most exciting aspect of our new blog is sponsorship!  See topic below for details.
