I had a vision of a thread that features shots of Plant Earth's inhabitants would be a great way for this community to create a collection of photos in an interactive way from different people featuring what beings exists in nature around them. At first I was thinking wildlife, but then I started thinking that all Earth's creatures can be caught in their natural states acting out their different natures. Since everything on Earth, even those modified by people like the domestic dog, are from the Earth, they should count too. So post the beings that you catch or encounter in your environment, whatever that may be - open to creative interpretation of course ~ I'll start with this photo of a river otter that lives across the street from my apartment. River otter sunning on the banks of the St. Marys River, Georgia. We watched her raise some pups over the summer under the marina dock. The water is brackish, meaning its a mixture of salt and fresh water. The St. Marys River which flows from the Okeefenokee Swamp is the cleanest fresh water river in the USA. Wildlife is abundant in this estuary of the Atlantic Ocean.
